RACE offers safety grants

The Rockford Area Community Endowment (RACE) is pleased to announce the establishment of a Public Safety Grants Program made available to police, fire and ambulance services within the West Michigan area. These funds were made available through the Healing Fields Project that was sponsored by RACE.

The Healing Fields Project raised $55,000, to be given back to the community through the sale of flags and private donations, as part of the 10-year remembrance of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attack. RACE will take applications until March 1, 2012, at which time the Board will convene and make grant awards. Grants will be available in an amount not to exceed $5,000, and those agencies who participated in the Healing Fields Project will receive priority funding. Applications can be obtained at the Rockford City Hall and Plainfield, Cannon, Courtland and Algoma township halls, as well as through the Rockford Public Schools Administration Offices.
