Lions Club Secures CFEP Grant for New Redford Playground

September 19 2023

New playground equipment was installed at Redford Park earlier this year. The funding for this park was secured by the Cardston Lions Club's successful application for the Community Facility Enhancement Program (CFEP), which contributed $41,345.00 towards the project total of $82,690.64. CFEP grant funding provides financial assistance to acquire, build, purchase, repair, renovate, upgrade or expand sports, recreational, cultural or other related public-use community facilities.

CFEP outcomes are to:

  • enhance the lifespan and support the creation of public-use community facilities
  • stimulate economic activity across the province

The Minister of Culture, Jason Luan had this to say about the project: 

"As Minister of Culture, I am extremely honoured to support the work of non-profit organizations that aim to foster healthy, vibrant communities across Alberta. The Government of Alberta is proud to support organizations that improve the quality of life in our communities." Jason Luan - Minister of Culture
