Regional Economic Development Officer Jennifer Moore approached the City in October, arguing that the program offers good value for Fort St. John.

The Northern Development Initiative Trust provides each of the municipalities in the region with a grant of $7,500 each to help with the cost of a grant writer. Instead, North Peace communities have pooled their money together to hire one grant writer, Andy Ackerman, which is then “topped up” with approximately $13,000 from the NPEDC.  

The City’s up to $5,000 contribution would be part of that top up.

While the City has used Ackerman’s services from time to time, it has encouraged non-profit groups to take the support instead.
