The Dow Chemical Company Foundation Community Grant Program is accepting applications for grants up to $10,000.
"This competitive grant program is designed to identify projects that will help make our local communities even better places to live and work, now and in the future," said Trish Thompson, public affairs manager. "Dow is proud to be part of this region and we want to make it stronger by helping meet community needs."
The program supports one-time project costs that have positive long-term impacts. The grant funding must be used for tangible, reusable items such as equipment, construction materials or re-usable supplies.
Past projects that have received funding have included equipment for volunteer fire departments, educational equipment, playground equipment and renovations for a food bank.
Since 2004, about $446,000 has been distributed in the Seadrift Operations neighborhood.
Tax-exempt charitable or nonprofit organizations, schools, or municipal or government agencies based in Calhoun or Victoria County or the communities of Austwell or Tivoli.
