Community Grant Program

grant2The Constitution Pipeline Company is committed to being a good neighbor by putting safety, environmental stewardship and community support at the heart of its operations. To help achieve this objective, Constitution Pipeline is establishing a fund to benefit local communities within the counties traversed by the pipeline project. The mission of the Constitution Pipeline Community Grant Program is to identify and help fund noteworthy projects that directly benefit the surrounding communities.

Each eligible organization may request up to $25,000 per funding cycle. Grants will be awarded based on community need and can be used to provide environmental benefit or economic development, or to support emergency services, youth and senior programs, or education programs. An Advisory Committee consisting of community leaders and company representatives will determine which projects receive funding. This committee will include at least two representatives from each county traversed by the pipeline.

Projects funded by the Constitution Pipeline Community Grant Program should provide community benefits, such as:

  • Emergency/first responder support
  • Youth or senior services
  • Education programs
  • Economic development
  • Enhancement of open spaces and park land for recreational enjoyment
  • Assistance in the enrichment of wildlife habitat
  • Promotion of environmental education
  • Purchases of property for preservation of wetlands and wildlife habitat
  • Purchases of property to access public lands, water resources, scenic and wildlife views, and for enhancement or development of active recreational areas
