New Richmond Area Community Foundation accepting grant applications

The New Richmond Area Community is accepting applications for its fall grant cycle. NRAC recognizes that there are services and programs that originate and are provided outside of the school district that also benefit the community. The benefit of the services or programs to the community should be reflected in the grant application.

All grant applications must be received by 5 p.m., Friday, Oct. 27.

Applications should be mailed to P.O. Box 96, New Richmond, WI 54017. Please email questions to:

All approved grant funds must be used during the grant term of January 2017 to May 2018.

• Routine operating expenses and annual campaigns

• Endowments

• Re-granting by another organization
