The Greenlee County Community Investment Fund recently selected the recipients and awarded more than $160,000 in grants to local communities and non-profit organizations.
The Greenlee County CIF is overseen by a committee of community leaders assembled by the Freeport-McMoRan Community Partnership Panel, to identify and address community needs in health care, education, environment, economic development and transportation.
The CIF was established in 2011, as part of Freeport-McMoRan’s goal to empower communities to develop and identify projects that would help ensure their self-sufficiency beyond the presence of Freeport-McMoRan operations. The Greenlee CIF has invested more than $2.5 million since its inception.
Here are the latest grant recipients:
The Greenlee County Noxious Weeds Control Program received $26,000 for technical training and equipment.
The Greenlee County Meals on Wheels received $23,000 to provide service to more clients.
