RDFC Awards Grants in Polar’s Service Area

By February 23, 2022No Comments

Polar Communications is a member of the Rural Development Finance Corporation (RDFC). As a result, communities in our service area were 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 has recently granted $750 to the Edinburg Fire Department. Grant funds will be used to purchase SCBA protection gear to safely enter environments that are immediately dangerous to the life or health of volunteers.

Another $750 grant went to the Cavalier Fire Department. Grant funds will be used to purchase an updated brush truck to better serve Cavalier and surrounding areas.

For an application, assistance, or questions concerning RDFC, please contact Lori Capouch at 701-667-6444 or lcapouch@ndarec.com.
