Case Construction Equipment is again offering its Dire States Grant, which provides $25,000 worth of free use of construction equipment to offset costs for building or repairing critical infrastructure.
This is the fourth year Case has provided the grant. Deadline to enter is December 31. Click here for an application. The winner will be announced in January.
All local governments and public institutions are eligible to apply and are asked to describe the project and give a detailed assessment of how it will benefit the community. Eligible infrastructure includes roads, bridges, utilities, erosion control, schools and parks.
“Now more than ever, we are seeing the importance of a well-built, well-maintained and reliable public infrastructure,” says Debbie Townsley, Case director of marketing. “Local communities and institutions are the first to delay or put off improvements when budgets get tight. The Dire States Equipment Grant will help the winning entrant push forward with a project that benefits the local community, and provides long-term savings and efficiencies that will allow them to do more with the resources they have.”
