Rockwell Collins seeking Green Communities Grant Program proposals


Rockwell Collins is accepting proposals for its 2008 Green Communities Grant Program. Launched four years ago, the program helps fund environmental projects in communities where the company operates. Applications will be accepted through Feb. 29, with grant winners being announced in conjunction with activities on or around Earth Day, April 22, 2008.

“With 90 Green Communities projects now established, we feel this program is making a real impact in the regions of the country and the world where we operate,” said Cindy Dietz, manager of community relations at Rockwell Collins. “Our employees have a stake in their communities and they’ve proven it by participating in and promoting these environmental projects.”

Grant awards will range from $500 to $2,500 each and only projects conducted or sponsored by qualified non-profit organizations are eligible.

A grant review committee will judge project applications based on criteria including:

Tangible environmental benefits of the project
Sustainability of the project benefits
Participation in the project by Rockwell Collins employees and/or retirees
Completion of the project within the calendar year of the grant award
Agreement to participate in publicizing the grant and the completed project
