The redevelopment of the former East View Lodge site into 44 units of senior’s housing won’t be receiving provincial funding.  NADCO chair Wayne Hildebrand and Grant Lukin, chair of the Neepawa Kinsmen Senior Citizens Housing Board said today that they were not one of the five successful applicants. In total, 27 projects were competing for $9.2 million in provincial funding through Manitoba Housing.

The group plans to continue to pursue the redevelopment of the site for senior’s housing, but will look at other options available without the $2.2 million in provincial funding they were seeking.

“Thank you to the community for their support and tolerance. Don’t give up on us, we’re not giving up,” said Lukin.
