Applications for the Portage Health Foundation’s Small Grant program are due Friday. The Small Grant program awards up to $3,000 for projects that will have an impact on community health and wellness. A total of $20,000 is available.
Last year, money was awarded to the Ahmeek Village Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department, the Canal Run, Chassell Township, the City of Hancock, the Keweenaw Family Resource Center, the Village of Lake Linden, the Ontonagon Community and School Recycling Initiative, and the Right Start Kids Academy.
The PHF has also opened the application window for this year’s Volunteer Emergency Services Grants. Providers such as fire departments and first responders in Baraga, Houghton, Keweenaw and Ontonagon counties are eligible for awards up to $5,000. A total of $40,000 is available. Recipients must match the grants dollar for dollar.
Last year, 13 organizations received funding for such investments as backup power, ice rescue equipment, and replacement of turnout gear and radios.
