ADELANTO, Calif. – Starting today, local non-profits, faith groups, schools and charities serving the residents of Adelanto can begin applying for a share of a new $100,000 community grant program being launched by Industrial Integrity Solutions (IIS).
The application period for the IIS Grant Program opens today, February 15, and will close March 31. Nonprofits can request an application by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org .
Funded by IIS, the program will issue grants starting from $500 in the coming months. To be eligible, organizations must meet the following criteria:
- Hold a current tax-exempt status under Section 501(c)(3), (4), (6) or (19) of the Internal Revenue Code, or be a K-12 public or private school or charter school
- Program must have a minimum of 6 months providing service to Adelanto residents
While all applications will be reviewed, primary consideration will be given to applicants whose programs serve families and children in need, victims of abuse, veterans, youth sports and youth organizations.
“We want to thank Industrial Integrity Solutions for helping local non-profit organizations fulfill their missions to bring aid and comfort to those who are struggling in our city,” said Adelanto Mayor Richard Kerr. “IIS is a true community partner and we welcome their efforts.”
IIS announced its new Adelanto community grants program at the Feb. 2 groundbreaking celebration of its new 630,000-square-foot HDO Industrial Park, the largest project of its kind in the city’s history.
Under construction near Yucca and Koala roads, HDO Industrial Park will create up to 550 permanent jobs – at least half of which will be for Adelanto residents – while generating an estimated $2 million in annual tax revenues for the city.
“Our company believes in giving back and we’re proud to support the community by providing $100,000 in grants this year to local organizations that work to improve the quality of life in Adelanto,” said Naseem Farooqi of Industrial Integrity Solutions. “We look forward to announcing the first round of grants in the coming weeks.”
