Constitution Pipeline Company announced the recipients of the second cycle of its Constitution Pipeline Community Grant program, awarding 26 grants totaling more than $400,000 to benefit local communities within the counties traversed by the proposed pipeline project.
The company awarded nearly $300,000 in grants earlier this year, bringing the total announced awards to approximately $700,000.
An advisory committee consisting of community leaders and company representatives helped determine which
projects would receive funding and how the dollars would be distributed. Grants were awarded based on overall
community need and merit of the proposal. Examples of eligible projects included emergency/first responder
support, youth or senior services, education programs, assistance in the enrichment of wildlife habitat and
promotion of environmental education.
“We are very pleased with the opportunity to assist in funding this innovative, diverse collection of community
projects,” said Matt Swift, Constitution Pipeline project manager. “Constitution Pipeline is committed to being a
good neighbor by putting safety, environmental stewardship and community support at the heart of our
Constitution Pipeline plans to distribute grant awards twice per year, with the next funding cycle’s deadline
scheduled for Sept. 30, 2013. Grant applications can be completed online at www.constitutionpipeline.com.
