An announcement is expected Thursday morning about more help for Manitobans struggling to make ends meet.

The Manitoba government is set to announce another round of financial aid this morning to help people deal with the rising cost
of living.

Premier Heather Stefanson's office says the new program will be more widespread than targeted measures announced last fall and there
will be a threshold based on people's income.

The government says the cost of the program will be close to $200-million.

Last fall, the Progressive Conservative government issued cheques to low-income seniors and some families with children under 18.
