SANTA FE, N.M. — Newport News Nuclear BWXT Los Alamos is making $400,000 available to support Northern New Mexico non-profit organizations in 2019, the company announced Tuesday.
The company, known as N3B, has the federal contract for clean-up of so-called “legacy waste” at Los Alamos National Laboratory. Glenn Morgan, president and program manager, said the firm has “committed to donating five percent of our earned fee to northern New Mexico nonprofit organizations.”
“We’ve earmarked about two thirds of those dollars for education-related programs,” he said in a news release. “The balance will go toward arts and culture; health and human services; and civic, community and economic development activities.”
N3B will hold a community forum at Fuller Lodge in Los Alamos from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on July 12 to present program guidelines and how to submit a funding request. A similar meeting will be held in Española at a future date. The funding guidelines are available on the N3B website at http://n3b-la.com./
