The Ontario government is holding firm with this year’s 2022 municipal funding allocations, pledging a total of $500 million, including $21.78 million for the City of Greater Sudbury.
This year’s contribution is a $143,300 increase from last year’s $21.64 million.
Maintaining a stable Ontario Municipal Partnership Fund is in keeping with a pledge the province made during last year’s Association of Municipalities of Ontario’s annual conference.
"Our government recognizes the importance of the OMPF to communities across the province, and we’ve heard loud and clear what our municipal partners are looking for,” Finance Minister Peter Bethlenfalvy said in a release issued today.
“We are committed to making sure the OMPF continues to meet the needs of local communities, by providing stable financial support that they can count on.”
The Ontario Municipal Partnership Fund supports 389 municipalities across the province with unconditional funding intended to support local priorities and specific community needs.
