People Fund Grant Applications Due Oct. 15

The Great Lakes Energy People Fund is accepting grant applications from non-profit organizations throughout its local service area. The upcoming grant application deadline is Oct. 15.

The People Fund is supported solely by you, our GLE members, who allow us to round up their bill each month to the next dollar. Since 1999, more than $3 million in grants have been awarded to charitable and community organizations throughout Great Lakes Energy’s 26-county service area, which stretches from Kalamazoo to the Mackinac Straits. The People Fund awarded $204,752 in grants in 2016.

Non-profit organizations can find program guidelines and request a grant application online or by calling Great Lakes Energy at 888-GTLAKES (888-485-2537), ext. 1313. Non-profit organizations that serve communities located in the Great Lakes Energy service area are eligible to apply. 

Remember–applications are due by Oct. 15. Another grant opportunity will be available next spring.
