Algoma Utilities, through funding available from our power supplier, WPPI Energy, is soliciting requests from local organizations interested in a Community Contribution Grant or an Economic Development Grant. Grants are awarded to local causes and Algoma Utilities' non-profit customers to help offset specific community programs or project costs.
Grant requests will be accepted at the Utilities’ office through July 8, 2019. To be considered for a grant, organizations must submit a letter requesting a grant. The letter should include information as to how the 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 grants include, but are not limited to:
- Algoma school projects
- Local safety programs
- Literacy and youth programs
- Local economic development programs
- Community projects and 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 487-5556.
