FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The United Way of Northern B.C. has announced that the second round of the Emergency Community Support Fund has been fully invested to support vital social service
programs in Northern British Columbia.
According to the United Way, a total of just over $674,000 of funding requests were received from agencies across Northern B.C. and was made available by the Government of Canada as part of the Round Two allocations of the Emergency Community Support Fund.
A $288,000 portion of the Support Fund has now been fully invested in 26 programs filling significant gaps in resources that would otherwise have gone unfilled or left agencies to find alternate resources at this critical time.
The full list of funded agencies can be found on the UWNBC website.
