Rural Community Grant Program

COVID-19 Response

Northwest FCS is committed to improving the lives of our customers, employees and the communities we serve.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are significantly increasing the amount of funds available in the 2020 Rural Community Grant program, and narrowing our focus to support non-profit organizations that are meeting the essential needs of rural communities. Food banks, food pantries, vital health care and emergency services throughout Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana and Alaska are all eligible and encouraged to apply. At this time we are only awarding grant funds to organizations that provide these essential services:

  • food banks & food pantries
  • children's food programs
  • food distribution/transport services
  • senior centers & nursing homes
  • medical centers, mental health clinics, health districts
  • volunteer fire and medical services
  • ambulance services

2020  submission deadline is Thursday, Dec. 10
