A new funding program to help seniors has been started.
The new Senior’s Community Recreation Grant Program came from the Provincial Government.
The funds for the program will be used to purchase fitness and walking equipment for elderly in their communities.
The community of Postville has recently received $3,000 under this program.
Patty Pottle, MHA for Torngat Mountains District is pleased that the recreation committee applied for the funding.
She hopes that other communities will also apply for funding for their seniors.
More than 100 province-wide grants have been provided through the program.
The grants have totaled three hundred and eighty seven thousand, two hundred dollars.
