Walker Announces Millions For Vulnerable People In Pandemic

Grey Bruce | by Claire McCormack  

MPP Bill Walker says the Ontario government is providing a $3.2 million to Grey Bruce.

The Ontario government is providing a total of $3,206,500 to Grey and Bruce Counties.

A media release from MPP Bill Walker's office says it's to help protect the health and safety of the province's most vulnerable people in response to the outbreak of COVID-19.

Through the program, Grey County will receive $2,312,900 and Bruce County will receive $893,600.

The funding is meant for homeless shelters, food banks, emergency services, charities and non-profits to support delivery of critical services, hire more staff, acquire more personal protective equipment, and find ways to promote physical distancing and self-isolation.

Walker's office says it will be up to the Counties to determine how this funding is distributed locally to give people in the community the support they need.

This money is part of Ontario's $200 million services relief funding to help protect the province's most vulnerable people.
