RDFC grants awarded
On behalf of Burke-Divide Electric, the Rural Development Finance Corporation (RDFC) recently awarded $2,000 in grants to community-based projects in Burke-Divide Electric Cooperative’s service territory.
The Kenmare Fire Department and the Columbus Fire Department each received $1,000 to assist with department projects.
Burke-Divide Electric Cooperative is a member of RDFC. As a result, communities in the Cooperative’s service area were eligible to apply for a grant of up to $2,000 for community-based projects. RDFC made these funds available in order that more people become aware of its larger loan program that funds community-based projects and non-profit entities with low interest loans.
For questions concerning funding available through RDFC programs, contact Lori Capouch at 701.667.6444 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
