TUNKHANNOCK — Organizations that support emergency services, environmental preservation, youth and senior services are just a few of those eligible for funding provided by the Atlantic Sunrise Community Grant Program. The fourth cycle online application deadline is Sept. 1.
Grants up to $10,000 per applicant are being awarded to eligible organizations to fund projects that provide benefit to local communities or the environment. Last spring, Williams distributed more than $381,000 to 57 organizations that reside in, and/or provide services to communities where the proposed Atlantic Sunrise project would be constructed and operated.
Two cycles of grant awards are announced each year. The fourth cycle of grant awards will be announced this fall. Grant applications can be completed online at williams.com/atlanticsunrise. Applications must be received by March 1 and Sept. 1.
The Atlantic Sunrise project is a proposed expansion of the existing Transco natural gas pipeline system in eastern Pennsylvania, designed to transport enough natural gas to serve approximately 7 million homes.
