The Linn County Board of Supervisors is accepting grant applications for the fiscal year 2018 Witwer Trust Grant Program. Eligible 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 application deadline is December 15, 2017.
The online application, eligibility requirements and a list of frequently asked questions are available on the Linn County website at www.linncounty.org/witwer. 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.
