Better Together Grants application window closed

The Better Together Grant applications are in and ROC Association Directors will choose five $2,000 grant winners based on projects that meet a compelling community need. Priority is given to those that meet a health and safety need, and they must benefit ROCs in a visible way.

The grant project must be coordinated by at least two association members who do not serve on the Board of Directors, and are not related or married to any of the members on the Board of Directors.

Lamprey River Cooperative, an 18-home ROC in Raymond, N.H., won a Better Together Grant in 2015 to have a combination mailbox /bus stop shelter built for its Members.

In October 2010, the ROC leaders who attended the Community Leadership Institute in Louisville developed a community grants program idea that would both help a fellow ROC as well as engage new leadership in the resident corporation. The ROC USA® Board of Directors has included the grants in the budget since 2010.

Examples of potential winning projects include funds to get started on a community center, furnishings for a newly built or renovated community center, playground equipment, signage or landscaping.

Winners will be announced June 23 and projects must be completed by the end of 2017.
