Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows projects receive nearly $250,000 to improve community safety

May 23, 2023

A new wave of funding is coming to Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows to help advance community safety and crime-prevention initiatives.

Four local organizations will benefit from this Civil Forfeiture Grant Program, which Maple Ridge-Mission MLA Bob D’Eith explained is the repurposing of money from criminal activities.

“Our government is taking the proceeds from criminal activity and investing them into our communities,” said D’Eith.

“This year, organizations in Maple Ridge will benefit from over $250,000 that will help limit the cycle of violence and support people to heal.”
