Lead Mitigation Grant for Schools and Child Care Centres


Health Canada updated the national guideline for lead in drinking water in 2019 due to information that health impacts can occur at lower levels of lead exposure than were previously identified. With their developing brains, infants and young children are the most sensitive to the effects of lead exposure, as there is a strong association between increased blood lead levels and decreased intelligence quotient (IQ). While water supplied by Manitoba municipal water systems or your own water supply (for example: well) is below the national guideline for lead in drinking water in all cases, lead may leach into the water from older lead service lines or plumbing fixtures such as fountains and taps. The main sources of lead in drinking water are older (pre-1950) lead service lines that connect buildings to the water main, and pre-1989 pipe solder and plumbing fixtures containing lead.

Manitoba is offering a Lead Mitigation Grant Program until March 31, 2022 to schools and child care centres to take steps to test drinking water for lead and to address elevated lead test results.

Who can apply?

  • Publicly funded K-12 schools located in Manitoba
  • Non-publicly funded independent K-12 schools located in Manitoba
  • Licensed Child Care Centres (as identified by Manitoba Families)

What are the application deadlines?

Applications are accepted any time and will be evaluated September 15, 2021, November 15, 2021, and February 15, 2022.

What do we fund?

We fund activities that reduce exposure of children to lead from drinking water. Examples include:

  • Replacing water fountains or taps used for drinking water
  • Installing filtered bottle filling stations
  • Replacing plumbing to water fountains or taps
  • Fixing walls opened to remove plumbing
  • Lead service line replacement

How to apply

Fill out the application form, save it to your device, and email the application and all requested documentation to ODW@gov.mb.ca

There are 3 categories in the grant. Apply for only 1 category / application form. If you are applying for more than 1 category, fill out one application for each category.

Category 1: Drinking Water Lead Mitigation (School)                      
Category 2: Drinking Water Lead Mitigation (Child Care Centre)
Category 3: Retroactive Drinking Water Lead Mitigation

For expenses that occurred after April 1, 2019
