Application forms are now available from the Maytag Corporation Foundation for the 2004 Community Innovation Awards.

In the United States, each of the 11 communities where Maytag has major U.S. operating facilities, employee committees have funds available from the foundation to award grants, generally in the $500 to $2,500 range, to non-profit charitable or educational organizations.

Locally, programs in Jasper County that address issues or problems in the following categories are eligible: families, youth (including teens and preschool), emergency services, community betterment (include recreational and cultural programs), education and program addressing issues of the elderly, persons with disabilities and health-related programming.

Awards will be made only for innovative programs, those that are creative, new, enhanced or expanded. Awards will not be granted for general operating budgets.

Interested non-profit organizations should contact Lou Ann Hill by phone at 787-6357 or by e-mail at to receive an application. The deadline to submit grant proposals to the Community Innovation Awards Committee is Oct. 18. Grant awards will be announced by the end of the year.
