Community Development Fund Grants Awarded To 25 Recipients

The Ste. Genevieve County Community Foundation and the members of the Review Committee for the Community Development Fund (CDF) grant program recently announced the recipients of the 2019 CDF grants.

The CDF grant program is made possible by an annual donation from Holcim to the Ste. Genevieve County Community Foundation.

“Holcim is pleased to be able to support this community based grant program and these vital projects in the areas of public safety, services, infrastructure and community development,” said Fernando Valencia, plant manager for the Holcim Ste. Genevieve site.

CDF grant applications can be submitted between September and December for consideration in the following year’s grant cycle. To be eligible, grant recipients must be either a government entity or a registered IRS not-for-profit organization. CDF grant applications are reviewed by a seven-member committee, including representatives from Holcim, the Community Foundation, the County Commission, Southeast Missouri Regional Planning and county emergency services.

The Ste. Genevieve County Community Foundation accepts donations and applications for direct grant funds for programs besides the CDF grant program at any time during the year.
