The province is boosting funding to 14 green initiatives in Manitoba as part of $1.5 million in grants from the Conservation and Climate Fund.

On Thursday, Environment Minister Jeff Wharton said the money would go to schools, municipalities, businesses and other groups working to protect the environment by reducing greenhouse gases and addressing the effects of climate change.

The fund, which was launched in 2020, saw an increase to its new total earlier this year to help greenlight more projects.
