Do you have an idea for a program or project that will promote leadership development or poverty reduction?
Matching funds for grant applications to Palo Alto County Gaming Development Corporation that meet those qualifications are being made available by The Storm. Grant funds of up to $500 per organization will be available for the current grant cycle.
"Yes, the Storm is still here and we have funds available," said Jennifer Meyer, chairman of the Storm organization. "We want to use our remaining funds to help the maximum number of organizations by supporting great projects in our community."
This offer will help Emmetsburg community organizations as they apply for grant funding. The Storm from 2005 specifically targeted the Emmetsburg community and funds from this organization must be used for leadership development or poverty reduction programs.
Application forms are available at the Emmetsburg Chamber of Commerce office, 1121 Broadway.
Applications must be postmarked by Dec. 9 or submitted to The Storm, in care of Jane Whitmore, P.O. Box 73, 1122 Broadway, Suite B, Emmetsburg, IA 50536. No applications will be accepted after Dec. 9.
Applications will be reviewed and agencies will be contacted by Dec. 15.
Funding is contingent on receiving grant funding.
