You can review the full report  from UBCM here, the listing also includes a look back at funding from years past through the last decade, featuring the findings for all municipal governments in the province..

The UBCM maintained funding is but a fraction of what municipal governments access through the year, municipalities receive grant funding for a range af projects through provincial and federal programs, along with agencies such as NDIT as well.

The City of Prince Rupert may want to expand on the engagement program by celebrating their success in the world of grant applications; creating a list of all those that they apply for during the course of the year, as well as to highlight the success that those applications have found.

Something that would offer residents a helpful guide to the programs that City staff actively pursuing through the year.
