EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR'S MESSAGE
We made it, folks. We navigated the dangerous waters of 2020 and have sailed, or perhaps crashed, into 2021.
For RIHEBC’s part, successfully navigating the 2020 waters meant trying to help our community. And while I have grown tired of the word “unprecedented,” I am going go ahead and use it here. Twice. In the face of unprecedented challenges faced by RIHEBC’s constituent organizations, RIHEBC committed an unprecedented amount to grant funding. $1 million was approved by the Board, half for COVID-related expenses, the other half for capital projects that might have progressed had it not been for COVID.
Our What’s Important Now Grant Program for COVID expenses has been fully paid out to 51 wonderful organizations. You may find out who the WINners are by clicking: [here]
Our Project Grant Program is underway. You will have to wait until the next newsletter to find out more.
Until then, my hope for you is smooth sailing in 2021. And lots of beautiful sunsets over calm seas.
