2023/2024 Resident Directed Grants Funding Approved

The Regional District of East Kootenay Board of Directors has approved funding for 132 projects around the region over the coming year.

The funding comes from Columbia Basin Trust’s Resident Directed (ReDi) Grants, which are administered by the RDEK.

“The approved 2023/2024 projects represent $1,320,390.34 in funding for everything from recreation and youth programs to history projects, stewardship programs, facility and accessibility upgrades,” says RDEK Board Chair Rob Gay. “The positive impact these projects will have in our communities and on our residents is immeasurable and we are deeply grateful to the Trust for its ongoing support.”

After considering public input and recommendations from the municipalities and Electoral Area Directors, the Board approved the funding at its June Board Meeting. A complete list of the approved projects is available on engage.rdek.bc.ca/redi or by contacting the RDEK.
