The Linn County Board of Supervisors today announced that applications for the fiscal year 2016 Witwer Trust grant program are now being accepted. Non-profit organizations in Linn County may apply for grant funding for projects that benefit Linn County residents. This year, $80,000 is available.
The online application, eligibility requirements and a list of frequently asked questions are available on the Linn County website at www.linncounty.org/witwer. The application deadline is December 15, 2015. This is a competitive grant process.
The grant awards are distributed from the proceeds of a trust established by Weaver Witwer, a prominent Cedar Rapids grocer and landowner who died in 1979.
