Facebook recently announced the new cycle of its Community Action Grants program.
Facebook said it is invested in the long-term vitality of Crook County. This annual grant program addresses local needs by making grants available to non-profit organizations and schools for projects that do one or more of the following:
• Address critical community needs by putting the power of technology to use for community benefit;
• Connect people online or off;
• Improve local Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (“STEM”) education.
Eligibility guidelines and an online application link are available at www.facebook.com/PrinevilleDataCenter. Applications are being accepted now through Dec. 3, 2019.
The 2019 Facebook Community Grants recipients, announced in March, included: Central Oregon Trail Alliance for development of the 66 Trail System; Crook County School District for a grant to provide Lego Mindstorm kits, solar car challenge kits and more to support STEM and literacy in the school district; and Prineville Kiwanis Foundation, in support of the community splash park.
