✓ Northeast Regional Corrections Center (NERCC)

  • The Northeast Regional Corrections Center (NERCC) is a minimum security facility owned by Arrowhead Regional Corrections. Serving the five county region of St. Louis, Carlton, Cook, Lake and Koochiching, this unique work farm teaches maintenance, farming, food service and other skills, and has the lowest recidivism rate in the state: 83% of residents do not re-offend. But project advocates say the NERCC campus needs help. Some of its buildings are now more than 80 years old and have long surpassed their life expectancy, creating safety issues for residents and staff, and affecting programming. ARC counties have already contributed nearly $6 million, but state help is needed to complete the needed upgrades. Actual Amount: $1,000,000
