Grants Available to Local Non-Profit Organizations
Algoma Utilities, through funding available from our power supplier, WPPI Energy, is soliciting requests from local organizations interested in a Community Contribution Grant or Economic Development Grant. Typically, grants are awarded to Algoma Utility, not for profit customers, to help offset specific community programs or project costs.
Grant requests will be accepted at the Utilities’ office through July 10, 2017. To be considered for a grant, non-profit organizations must submit a letter requesting assistance. The letter should include information as to how the not for profit organization will use the funds to benefit the community or local economic development. Organizations must also show that funds are necessary to complete a project or program and the time frame in which the grant would be utilized.
Examples of past grants include, but are not limited to:
- Algoma school projects
- Local safety programs
- Literacy and youth programs
- Local economic development programs
- Spring/Summer festivals or events
- Park improvements
- Power quality improvement projects
Letters should be sent to: Algoma Utilities, Attn: Office Manager, 1407 Flora Avenue, Algoma, WI 54201. If you have any questions concerning the grant programs please contact the Algoma Utilities office at (920) 487-5556.
