The March 1 application deadline for the next round of Atlantic Sunrise Community Grants is quickly approaching.
Since its inception in 2015, the Atlantic Sunrise Community Grant program has distributed more than $2 million across the 10-county Atlantic Sunrise project area in support of community services, programs and projects. This includes nearly $300,000 awarded to 35 organizations in fall 2017. Fire departments, schools, parks, and townships are just a few of the organizations that have received funding over the years from this important program.
At Williams, we are proud to see how grant funds are being used to improve local communities. A great example of these grant dollars in action can be seen at Hebron Hose Co. #1 in Lebanon County, where first responders are using grant funds to purchase critical, modern rescue equipment to support community safety. You can learn more about how community grants have benefited Pennsylvania organizations in this article on the Atlantic Sunrise website, which includes a video featuring Hebron Hose Co. #1.
If you know an organization in your community that supports emergency services, environmental preservation, education, or youth/senior services, please encourage them to apply for an Atlantic Sunrise Community Grant by the March 1 deadline. Applications can be completed online on the Atlantic Sunrise website.
