Site C Project Supporting Peace Region Community Non-Profits to Generate Opportunities.
The BC Hydro GO Fund provides support to non-profit organizations in the Peace Region to generate opportunities. The fund allocates $100,000 annually for non-profit organizations supporting children, families and seniors to apply for individual grants to a maximum of $10,000 per eligible project.
BC Hydro is committed to investing $100,000 annually through the GO Fund for each year of construction on the Site C Clean Energy Project. This commitment began in 2016 with two $100,000 allocations and has been followed with one $100,000 allocation per year since.
The program aims to support vulnerable populations through financial grants to local non-profit organizations that provide services to children, families and seniors. The GO Fund is targeted to support non-profit organizations serving the communities of Fort St. John, Hudson’s Hope, Taylor, Chetwynd, and residents of Peace River Regional District (Electoral Areas B, C and E). Funding decisions are made by a regional committee with appointees from the communities and rural areas that the Fund is serving.
