Funding problems threaten DART


The Dauphin At-Risk Teens (DART) program is in a tenuous position.
The local program working with at-risk youth received funding from the Department of Justice Prevention Branch, the City of Dauphin and Mountain View School Division (MVSD).
That amounts to $20,000, DART co-ordinator Lori Bicklmeier said, out of an annual budget of approximately $63,000.
“So there’s a huge shortfall,” she said, adding the program has not been informed of the status of funding from the province.
“Usually I know by now.”
Also, federal funding of approximately $13,000 is no longer available, as that program has been eliminated.
