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 of up to $2,000 for community-based projects. RDFC is making these funds available in order that more people become aware of their larger loan program that funds community-based projects and non-profit entities with low interest loans.
“RDFC’s ability to offer this grant program is a great opportunity for our local communities to enhance projects that benefit their community,” said Steve Lysne, SRT CEO/General Manager. “SRT is pleased to provide matching funds for the program to further progress these worthy projects.”
RDFC recently awarded a $500 grant to the Sherwood Park Board and SRT matched those funds with an additional $500 donation. The Sherwood Park Board will be using the grant proceeds to design and create new signage located at the entrance of town, and at the Sherwood City Park.
RDFC also awarded $500 to the Mohall Park District and received the $500 match from SRT for improvements to the community swimming pool. The Mohall Park District is renovating the pool building’s exterior by replacing doors, paint and rain gutters.
For an application, assistance or questions concerning RDFC, please contact Lori Capouch at 701-667-6444 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
