Climate Change and Municipalities Minister Derek Bennett announced Thursday the allocations that each municipality in Newfoundland and Labrador will receive from the $27.4 million in Safe Restart Agreement funding in response to COVID-19.

The federal government portion of the Safe Restart Agreement is being matched on a 50/50 cost share basis with provincial government expenditures retroactive to April 1.

The funding distributed in additional operating grants for municipalities is based on 2016 census data, and is guided by a per capita basis allocation, to all municipalities, the province said in a news release.

Payments will be processed once Budget 2020 is fully adopted by the House of Assembly.

Ottawa announced the Safe Restart Agreement in July, with details released in September, and it funds needs to protect public health and safety, prepare for future waves of COVID-19 and further support the safe reopening of economies.

The federal government is contributing up to $2 billion to support municipalities in Canada with COVID-10 operating costs through this agreement.

“We know municipalities and their advocates at Municipalities Newfoundland and Labrador have been eagerly anticipating the amount of funding that each municipality will receive through this program as they begin their budgeting processes," Bennett said in a news release.

"This year has been like no other but it has displayed how resilient we are and how our municipal leaders have forged ahead as we navigate through this time. The federal government’s support for municipalities is greatly appreciated.”

Obviously the largest share of the funds go to the biggest municipalities, such as St. John's and Mount Pearl.
