Heartland’s Concern for Community Grants of up to $5,000 are designed to do good works in Southeast Kansas and fund projects in the community surrounding Heartland’s service area.
Grants are intended to fund projects such as county fair infrastructure improvements, 4-H and youth projects; capital campaigns in school districts in Heartland’s service territory; non-profit organizations undergoing capital campaigns with facilities that focus on education, environment, culture and the arts, and civic and community development; and other donations that better the residents and community of rural Kansas.
Funds for Heartland's Concern for Community Grants come from the cooperative's unclaimed capital credit retirement checks. Because that money was intended to support the local community, Heartland's Board of Directors has decided to use those funds for community grants.
Grant money does not come from cooperative revenues and the issuing of grants will not impact future rates or capital credit allocations.
