Preston Community Fund grant applications being accepted

Preston – The citizens' committee overseeing the Preston Community Fund is accepting applications for grants from Preston-based nonprofit and civic groups until Sept. 30.

Committee Chairman David J. Paige said the committee anticipates announcing grant awards on Nov. 1. Grant applications are available at the Preston Public Library, 389 Route 2, or can be downloaded from the Preston town website.

The Preston Community Fund was established in 1991 with funds given by the former American Ref-Fuel Company of Southeastern Connecticut, which then operated the Preston regional trash incinerator, to help support the varied nonprofit and civic organizations in town.

The fund has supported projects and organizations such as the Preston Pipeline town newsletter, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and the community food bank.
