Terrace Safe Needle Disposal Task Force to hear back on funding tomorrow

Terrace’s Safe Needle Disposal Task Force is set to issue a funding update tomorrow.

An application for an Imagine Grant to support the Task Force was previously submitted by the Terrace Downtown Improvement Area and Northern Health.

Northern Health is expected to hear back regarding the status of that application before tomorrow’s Task Force meeting.

If approved, the funding will be able to go towards the installation of safe disposal units, but not towards the proposed clean team.

Kermode Friendship Society, however, has offered 5 thousand dollars in funding if needed to go towards both the units and the clean team, as well as offered to be a stakeholder in the team.

On top of that, the Task Force has sent in a 2 thousand dollar application for PEER funds in support of the team.

Sharps disposal units have already been installed at the library, with more possibly on the way.
