Province Releases Community Allocations for MEEP 2020 Program

Today, Government Relations Minister Lori Carr announced specific funding allocations for all communities within the province under the new Municipal Economic Enhancement Program 2020 (MEEP).

“The Government of Saskatchewan is proud to continue to fulfil its commitment to the people of the province by ensuring important infrastructure dollars are available to our communities when they need it most,” Carr said.  “This $150 million investment into Saskatchewan’s municipalities can be used for shovel ready infrastructure projects and initiatives, and will help keep our municipalities strong during the current pandemic.”

MEEP 2020 will provide $150 million, or approximately $143 per capita, to local municipalities to support investments in infrastructure, to stimulate economic recovery and encourage local job creation.

Allocation highlights for MEEP 2020, include:

  • City of Saskatoon – $35,529,807
  • City of Regina - $30,916,844

  • City of Swift Current - $2,386,467
  • City of Yorkton - $2,348,953
  •  City of North Battleford - $2,057,472

The program is a key component of the Government of Saskatchewan’s $7.5 billion, two-year capital plan, that was announced on May 6, to build a strong Saskatchewan and stimulate Saskatchewan’s economic recovery from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
