New municipal funding plan
The New Brunswick government has outlined a new municipal funding plan that will replace the former unconditional grant system. About $54-million out of the $66-million set aside in the new program will be distributed through an equalization formula. The change will mean some municipalities will receive a drop in their provincial funding, while others will receive additional money from the government.
