grant2The Constitution Pipeline Community Grant program was developed to demonstrate the company’s commitment to placing safety, environmental stewardship and community support at the heart of its operations. The program was established a fund to benefit local communities within the counties traversed by the pipeline project.

Since its inception in 2012, more than $2 million has been awarded by the Constitution Pipeline Community Grant Program to 159 organizations to help fund noteworthy projects that directly benefit communities in the pipeline project area.

An advisory committee consisting of community leaders and company representatives helped determine which projects would receive funding and how the dollars would be distributed. Grants were awarded based on overall community need and merit of the proposal. Examples of eligible projects included emergency/first responder support, youth or senior services, education programs, assistance in the enrichment of wildlife habitat and promotion of environmental education.
