During the past year CPANB has continued to work on our Web site and Facebook page to make sure there is current information posted. We have linked to many like minded programs or organizations to promote their work in Crime Prevention.
Our telemarketing campaign was very successful and a booklet on the topic of Domestic Abuse will be produced and distributed to our board and our benefactors a bit later this year.
We continued with our grant process and are pleased to announce the following received funding from CPANB:

$10,000 is put aside every year from our campaign that we give back through our grant process. We are always open to receiving applications. The criteria can be found on our web site at http://www.cpanb-apcnb.com/grants.html.
