HALDIMAND—Fifteen Haldimand schools will be receiving a total of $146,250 in Pride of Place (POP) funding and nine of these schools will receive a further $76,000 in Community Partnership Incentive Plan (CPIP) funding for 2018-19.
POP allocations address facility features that contribute to a more welcoming environment for students, staff and the overall school community. CPIP is a program that supports school-based projects by matching funds raised by the community with a contribution from Grand Erie District School Board. Funds are used to match money raised by a school from outside sources (i.e., donations or school fundraising) for qualifying buildings or grounds projects estimated to a maximum of $10,000 per school.
At a previous Committee of the Whole meeting, Trustees were presented with a report that outlined a plan to allocate $650,000 and $150,000 to POP and CPIP respectively.
