ROC Association Accepting Applications for Better Together Grants

CONCORD, N.H.—The ROC Association is pleased to announce that it is now accepting applications for 2021 Better Together Grants.

Applications are due by June 13, grant recipients will be notified by June 30, and projects must be completed by the end of 2021.

The grant project must be coordinated by at least two association members who do not serve on the Board of Directors.

Individual grants are available up to $2,000 with a total of $20,000 available. Any Resident Owned Community with a current or past technical assistance contract with a ROC USA® Network Certified TA Provider is eligible to apply. Recipients of last year’s grants are not eligible for this year’s funding.

The ROC Association sponsors two types of Better Together grants: Community Projects and Rebranding.

Community projects should meet a compelling community need, with priority given to those that meet a health and safety need. Examples include security lighting, safety fencing, bus shelters, playgrounds, speed bumps, or repairs to a community center. Community projects should benefit the ROC in a visible way.

Rebranding projects should present a new image to the Membership and public about the ROC. This can include legal name changes or new “doing business as” names, new signage, new letterhead and collateral material, or a new website or website redesign.

Applications can be submitted online or by downloading a printable application in either English or Spanish.
