Local non-profit organizations still have a few days left to apply for a grant through the Foundation for the Future of Delaware County.
Chairman Jerry Burke says every year, the foundation receives a portion of state gambling money that is given to every county that doesn’t have gambling.
Burke says around 80-thousand will be donated to non-profits in Delaware County.
Each year, 35 to 40 non-profit organizations throughout the county apply for a grant.
The deadline to apply is this Friday, with the grants awarded in late March. You can get more information about the grant online at the Foundation for the Future of Delaware County website or you can contact Bev Rahe at Delaware County Economic Development at 927-3325.
