Reminder: January 23 Deadline to Apply for Two Infrastructure Programs

Released on January 9, 2017

Today, Government Relations Minister Donna Harpauer reminded eligible recipients to apply by noon, Monday, January 23 for a pair of infrastructure programs that will enhance communities and keep Saskatchewan strong.

“Improving, renewing and building local infrastructure improves the quality of life for our citizens by strengthening our water works, transportation systems and civic assets,” Harpauer said.  “We look forward to receiving project applications so that we can move forward together with our partners to build an even better Saskatchewan.”

Online applications are now being accepted for infrastructure projects under both the Clean Water and Wastewater Fund (CWWF), and the Provincial Territorial Infrastructure Component (PTIC) of the New Building Canada Fund.

To streamline the process, eligible applicants can apply to both the PTIC and CWWF programs at the same time by submitting one application.  If an applicant wishes a previous PTIC application to be considered, they will need to resubmit a new form to meet requirements.

The application form, as well as information concerning program criteria and eligibility can be found at www.saskatchewan.ca/government/municipal-administration/funding-finances-and-asset-management/funding/nbcf.

PTIC, a 10 year program announced in 2014, will see $240.2 million in federal funding administered by the Ministry of Government Relations for eligible PTIC applicants.  These projects are funded one-third each by the federal government, the provincial government and eligible recipients.  This is the second intake of PTIC project applications.

The CWWF, announced in fall 2016, will see Saskatchewan receive $89.3 million in funding from the Government of Canada over two to three years during Phase One.  The Government of Saskatchewan has committed to provide an additional $44.2 million for water, wastewater and storm water projects.  Eligible project costs will be funded up to 50 per cent by the federal government and 25 per cent by the provincial government, with the eligible recipient responsible for the remaining costs.
