NIPSCO Environmental Grants Now Available to Local Nonprofits

nipsco-logoLocal nonprofit organizations working to protect the environment can get some help, thanks to a grant from NIPSCO. The company is now accepting applications for its new Environmental Action Grant.

The goal is to provide funds for restoration and education projects, as well as to create new opportunities for people to volunteer. NIPSCO managing director of public affairs Larry Graham says they hope the grant leads to the creation of innovative and needed projects that might otherwise never happen.

Grant recipients will receive funding between the amounts of $500 and $5,000. Applications are due by March 31. Grant awards will be announced during the week of Earth Day, April 22.
