Thank you Rural Dividend Fund for building segments 2 and 3 of the Westside Legacy Trail

[lead]The Province of British Columbia contacted the Columbia Valley Greenways Trail Alliance on March 3, 2017 to inform us the Rural Dividend Fund will award $500,000 towards the Westside Legacy Trail. “This is our singe largest donation to date and we are thrilled to announce this government funding”, said an ecstatic Mark Halwa, Executive Director of Greenways.[/lead]

Greenways learned of the Rural Dividend Fund from the Columbia Valley Chamber of Commerce who hosted a workshop for potential applicants. “We attended and discovered there was a new funding stream specifically for Destination Trail Projects”, said Halwa. “We also learned that grants over $100,000 required audited financial statements so thanks to a thorough review by a local accounting firm, Green Andruschuk, our organization was able to apply for an additional $400,000, and we are very thankful for that”, remarked Halwa and added “we gratefully acknowledge the financial support of the Province of British Columbia”.
