Provincial money has come in the nick of time for Quinte region literacy groups.
The provincial government today announced $1.4 (m) million dollars to improve all sorts of literacy in the region.
The Prince Edward Learning Centre in Picton will receive a top-up, which will make their funding equivalent to $239,000.
Executive Director, Linda Conley, says they’ve been waiting a long time for more funding.
Conley says the money means now the groups can focus on literacy work instead of fund raising.
Loyalist College is the biggest recipient with $859,000.
$169,000 is going to the Quinte Literacy Group and $150,000 is going to the Quinte Adult Day School.
