The Robert Conconi Foundation, through Dominion Securities, has been awarding groups as much as 500-thousand dollars annually, in years past.
The Recovery Centre Society is the organization behind the building of a 20-room alcohol & drug rehabilitation facility in the Fort St. John area.
Chair Bruce Lantz says they’ve raised about 20-percent of the five-million dollar capital cost.
To date, it’s been unable to secure land, however, Lantz is optimistic both the property and the money will become a reality in the future.
Lantz says the proposal has the support of local, provincial, and federal elected officials.
He says the next step will be to approach the different levels of government for support.
