Atlantic Sunrise Community Grant program accepting applications

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:

  1. Emergency/first responder support
  2. Youth or senior services
  3. Education programs
  4. Economic development
  5. Enhancement of open spaces and park land for recreational enjoyment
  6. Assistance in the enrichment of wildlife habitat
  7. Promotion of environmental education
  8. Purchases of property for preservation of wetlands and wildlife habitat
  9. 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.
