HUDSON’S HOPE, B.C – The Hudson’s Hope Public Library is receiving $10,000 through the Site C project’s Generate Opportunities (GO) Fund.

The grant funding will go towards year-round programming and services to community members of all ages.

“This includes new program tools for students up to 18 years old to learn about science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics. The grant will also provide support for a monthly book club program for adults.,” says the BC Hydro release Friday.

This is the second time the library has been a recipient of the GO Fund.

“Being awarded a GO Fund grant for $10,000 will help solidify funding for library programs. It will also give a firm foundation to restart in-person programming when provincial restrictions are lifted enough for library programs to resume in person,’ says Amber Norton, Library Director.

The grant was developed in 2016 to support non-profit organizations in the north and south Peace Region throughout the construction of Site C.

BC Hydro is doling out $100,000 per year for eight years. To date, 57 projects have received $504,000 from the $800,000 fund. The program provides funding for community services and the fund is administered by the Northern Development Initiative Trust.

Information on how to apply for the grant can be found on the Site C project website.
