Examples of Projects Eligible for Funding
Projects should meet a compelling community need. Examples include security lighting, safety fencing, a bus shelter, playground, speed bumps, or repairs to a community center. The project should benefit your ROC in a visible way.
Rebranding projects can include legal name changes or new d/b/a (“doing business as” names), new signage, new letterhead and collateral material, a website redesign or new website (including ROC USA-provided websites). Basically, something that presents a new image to the Membership and general public that is a basic change in the outgoing message.

In October 2010, the ROC leaders who attended the Community Leadership Institute in Louisville developed a community grants program idea that would both help fellow ROCs as well as engage new leadership in the co-op. The ROC USA® Board of Directors has included funding for the grants in the budget since 2010.
In 2019, the ROC Association added rebranding as a grant category. These grants provide funding for communities to make improvements to public-facing portions of their ROC, such as naming, signage, websites, letterhead and print collateral materials. Why is rebranding important? Basically, it helps shape how people view your community. This grant also allows for ROCs to replace outdated wording with terms that better represent their resident-owned community.
Today, grants are combined into one fund – the Better Together Grant Program for Community Improvement – anything from a building or repair project, to rebranding and marketing to improving community engagement.
