There’s a helping hand out there for social leaders who have been tasked with paying it forward in their communities.
The Columbia Basin Trust is offering grants for projects that will improve the overall quality of life in Basin communities by tackling social issues, and improving the environment and youth leadership.
“Every year we’re impressed with the quality and breadth of projects brought forward to us,” said Lisa Kilpatrick, CBT senior manager for the delivery of benefits. “Thank you to everyone who develops ideas to support our residents, communities and environment. We look forward to seeing what results come from this fall’s intake.”
The deadline for the Social Grants program, which helps fund community or regional projects that can improve social well-being within the Basin, is Monday, October 5th. It is geared toward addressing social issues in communities and regions that have been deemed as social priorities.
The Environment Grants program is geared toward funding projects that help advance environmental education and awareness about ecosystems, climate and water. The deadline to apply for Environmental Grants is Monday, October 19th.
Lastly, there will be a Monday, November 2nd deadline for applicants who are interested in Youth Grants to help support youth leadership, engagement or employment opportunities.
