The Washington County Riverboat Foundation has posted the application for spring competitive grants. This application itself and the process to apply is the same as it has been in the past. In the fall, the foundation gave out about one-million dollars to 52 groups.
The foundation is the nonprofit license holder for the Riverside Casino and Golf Resort, which provides all of its funding. The foundation was formed after the gaming license was issued in 2005.
Millions of dollars from the foundation have partially funded a variety of local projects. Usually, the foundation expects the group or non-profit applying to also have raised money from other sources.
In addition to the competitive grants, the foundation has given about 5-million dollars directly to municipal governments in Washington County. Applications for the competitive grants can be found on the foundation website.
