Housing projects in Fort McMurray, Fort Chipewyan and Anzac are getting some extra funds from the federal and provincial governments.
Nearly $32 million from the two are being used on 362 senior and family projects across the province. The government of Canada is providing over $25 million, while the government of Alberta is supplying roughly $6 million.
The funding will allow contractors to replace shingles, eavestroughs, downspouts, some siding, and at least one furnace at various community housing projects in the RMWB.
A total of 180 jobs are expected to be created through the funding.
