Camrose, AB – Camrose Regional Exhibition & Agriculture Society is pleased to announce that it was the successful recipient of its CFEP Small application sent to the Government of Alberta in January 2020 to start the work of a new Administration
Building. CRE received $125,000 from the Ministry of Culture, Multiculturalism and Status of Women towards the overall project costs.
“We are delighted to have success with our granting program and awarded the Community Facility Enhancement Program grant for $125,000 which was submitted in January 2020. As an agriculture society and non-profit, the importance of these grants from the Government of Alberta is paramount in order to make major infrastructure improvements that could not be done otherwise” said Mark Schneider, President of the CRE Board of Directors. “This funding allows us to start the project now and get people working in the local Camrose area.”
“The new administration building is a multi-year project that we are excited to get going on. It’s exactly the kind of good news we needed to keep future focused while dealing with the loss of events due to COVID-19.” added Dianne Kohler, Executive Director of the CRE. “Our old administration building has about 2-4 years of life remaining without a major investment in repairs. We believe that it makes more sense financially to work towards long-term infrastructure solutions rather than quick fixes. We are grateful to the Government of Alberta for continuing it’s CFEP granting program during these challenging economic times.”
