REC's Community Grant Application Now Available

March 15, 2018

REC has made its grant application available to emergency service agencies, community non-profits, and educators for 2018. The grants are made possible through REC's community grant program, which provides supplemental funding for projects that will positively impact members of the cooperative. Completed applications must be returned to one of REC's offices, or postmarked, by April 13, 2018.

The Cooperative began the grant program in 1996. Since then, it has awarded grant money in support of hundreds of projects throughout REC's service territory.

REC will award grants to selected organizations in the following categories:

  • Education - individuals or groups of teachers who demonstrate a need for supplemental funding to complete educational projects.
  • Community - non-profit groups serving REC members that demonstrate a need for supplemental funding to complete community-focused projects.
  • Emergency Services - fire, rescue, police and other emergency service agencies that demonstrate a need for supplemental funding to complete projects.

Applications are available at any REC office, online at here or by contacting REC's public relations department at
