LAKE COUNTRY – A $4,000 grant from the B.C. Government will help Lake Country plan for a healthier community, Kelowna-Lake Country MLA Norm Letnick announced today.

The money will be used to organize focus groups to assess the health and social needs of citizens in Lake Country. 

This grant is awarded under the Healthy Communities Capacity Building Grant, which supports local government in learning about the needs of their residents in the fields of mental health, physical activity and literacy.  More than 150 applications were received from communities across the province for projects as diverse as active transportation planning and urban agriculture promotion.
