The City of Portage la Prairie has been announcing local organizations who have been awarded Community Grants on the platform X, formerly known as Twitter.

Mayor Sharilyn Knox says it was important to get the word out where people could see what the city is giving money to.

"You will see a number of community grants that have gone out, we're trying to let citizens know where that money has gone."

Knox adds, the application process helps them address various needs in the community.

"The big thing we look for is, how is what we're deciding going to benefit our community and residents as a whole? So, that's kind of what one of the guiding parts of making those choices is."

The organizations that were selected have been shared to all the city's social media, which are linked below.
