Community Cares Grant Applications Due March 1
The application deadline for Riverland Energy Cooperative’s Community Cares grant is Friday, March 1, 2019. Applications will be reviewed at the Community Cares Foundation meeting held later in March.
Community Cares rounds up Riverland Energy member’s electric bills to the next highest dollar, with the rounded up money going to the Community Cares fund. The board which oversees the distribution of this fund is seeking qualifying area individuals and organizations to receive its available funds. Qualifying individuals and organizations must be members and/or communities served by Riverland Energy Cooperative needing monetary assistance for special or emergency needs.
Eligible funding categories include non-profit organizations, 501©3 programs, and charities that include community service, education and youth, community economic assistance, environment and disaster relief.
Applications for the grant and helpful information about the foundation can be found here or at one of the Riverland Energy offices in Arcadia or Onalaska.
