On August 25, the North Peace Community Foundation announced that $187,400 in funding was received to support multiple projects in the North Peace and the Northern Rockies regions.
The money received is part of the Government of Canada’s Community Services and recovery Fund, which was a one-time investment of $400 million by the Government of Canada to assist with community organizations, non-profits, charities, and Indigenous governing bodies located in Canada.
“Community service organizations are at the heart of communities like the North Peace and Northern Rockies regions, creating a sense of belonging from coast to coast to coast. The Community Services Recovery Fund will enable organizations that serve our diverse communities to adapt and modernize their programs and services to invest in the future of their organizations, staff, and volunteers. Together, we can rebuild from the isolation of the COVID-19 pandemic and build a more just and equitable future for those in the North Peace and Northern Rocky regions of BC.” says Jenna Sudds, Minister of Families, Children and Social Development.
