We are now accepting applications for a new, $1.8 million, competitive grant program to promote climate-friendly assistance programs throughout Northern Illinois. We understand the gap widened by pandemic-related challenges and will award grants up to $450,000 to four nonprofit organizations in our service territory who will provide assistance to limited income customers through climate-friendly programs and cross-promote additional complementary offerings for which these customers may qualify.
