Algoma Utilities, through funding available from its power supplier, WPPI Energy, is soliciting requests from local organizations interested in a Community Contribution Grant or Economic Development Grant. Typically, grants are awarded to Algoma Utility, not-for-profit customers, to help offset specific community programs or project costs.

Grant requests will be accepted at the Utilities’ office through July 10, 2017. To be considered for a grant, nonprofit organizations must submit a letter requesting assistance. The letter should include information as to how the not-for-profit 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 past grants include, but are not limited to:

  • Algoma school projects
  • Local safety programs
  • Literacy and youth programs
  • Local economic development programs
  • Spring/Summer festivals or events
  • Park improvements
  • Power quality improvement projects
