Federal government awards NEAT with $144k

The Northern Environmental Action Team will be expanding to the North after a substantial contribution from the Federal Government.

NEAT applied for the Federal Government’s Community Adjustment Funds and has been awarded $144,400 to expand its programs.

NEAT’s Executive Director Sally Emory says the organization knows exactly what it’s going to do with the money.

The new Project Coordinator position will be filled by John Bass who will work with the Executive Director and the Eco-Educators.

Additionally, the funding enables NEAT to expand the Eco-Educator positions to be more comprehensive and engage a wider audience of residents and businesses to complement the active school programs.

The funding decision was announced on August 11 by the Prince George – Peace River MP Jay Hill.

Emory says this is exciting news for Fort Nelson, because the residents will now have support on environmental programs in the region.

Emory says the funding comes at a timely matter because NEAT is celebrating their 20th anniversary this year. For more information on NEAT and their programs, visit www.neat.ca
