MINOT, N.D. – SRT Communications, Inc. is a member of the Rural Development Finance Corporation (RDFC). As a result, communities in SRT’s service area are eligible to apply for a grant for community-based projects. RDFC is making these funds available in order for more people to become aware of their larger loan program that funds community-based projects and non-profit entities with low interest loans.
“This program is an incredible opportunity for SRT and RDFC to team up and offer our local communities funding for projects that benefit their residents,” said Steve Lysne, SRT CEO/General Manager. “SRT is proud to match these funds to assist these worthwhile projects.”
RDFC recently awarded a $500 grant to the Antler Cemetery Association and SRT matched those funds with an additional $500 donation. Established in 2017, the Antler Cemetery Association is responsible for the perpetual care and general management of the Antler Community Cemetery, St. Mary’s Catholic Cemetery, and the Antler Pioneer Cemetery. The grant funds will be used to complete the tree planting project that was started in 2019.
