People Fund grants available
The Great Lakes Energy People Fund is accepting letters of interest and grant applications from non-profit organizations throughout its service area for the spring grant cycle. Letters of interest are due by April 1. If the letter of interest is approved, the applicant can then submit a grant application by April 15. All letters and applications are accepted through an online grant application portal that can be found at Great Lakes Energy members support the People Fund by agreeing to have their bill rounded up to the nearest whole dollar amount. That extra change is then pooled with other People Fund participants and returned to the community through grants to non-profit, charitable organizations that provide humanitarian, educational, or community development services within the cooperative’s 26-county service area.
