Williams is committed to being a good community neighbor and environmental steward. That’s why we established a grant program to benefit local communities where the Atlantic Sunrise pipeline project is being constructed.
Established in 2015, the Atlantic Sunrise Community Grant Program has shared more than $2 million across the 10-county Atlantic Sunrise project area in support of noteworthy projects.
Eligible organizations can apply for grants up to $10,000 per applicant to fund projects that provide benefit to local communities or the environment. Projects funded by the Atlantic Sunrise Community Grant program include:
- Emergency/first responder support
- Youth or senior services
- Education programs
- Economic development
- Enhancement of open spaces and park land for recreational enjoyment
- Assistance in the enrichment of wildlife habitat
- Promotion of environmental education
- Purchases of property for preservation of wetlands and wildlife habitat
- Purchases of property to access public lands, water resources, scenic and wildlife views, and for enhancement or development of active recreational areas
Last fall, Williams distributed more than $292,000 to 35 organizations that reside in, and/or provide services to communities where the Atlantic Sunrise project is being constructed, including a $10,000 grant to help Pennsylvania College of Technology launch a makerspace on its main campus and more than $50,000 in grants to five organizations in Lancaster County.
