LOS ALAMOS, N.M.— Newport News Nuclear BWXT Los Alamos (N3B) is making $400,000 available to support Northern New Mexico nonprofit organizations for calendar year 2019.
“When we assumed management of the Los Alamos Legacy Cleanup Contract, we committed to donating five percent of our earned fee to Northern New Mexico nonprofit organizations,” said Glenn Morgan, N3B president and program manager.
“We’ve earmarked about two thirds of those dollars for education-related programs. The balance will go toward arts and culture; health and human services; and civic, community and economic development activities,” Morgan said.
N3B will be holding a community forum at Fuller Lodge in Los Alamos, June 12, 5:30-7:30 p.m. The purpose of the meeting is to present the Community Contribution Program guidelines, discuss how to submit a funding request and answer questions.
A similar meeting will be held in Española at a future date.
Program guidelines are available on the N3B website at www.n3b-la.com.
