REA Energy Community Development Project Program
About the Program
Pennsylvania legislation was passed allowing electric cooperatives to use escheated funds for regular assistance, emergency assistance, capital improvement projects within the community and education. Therefore, REA Energy Cooperative, Inc. (REA) has created a process for these funds. The Community Development Project Program provides grants from this community project fund for capital projects that support community and economic development and will be of significant benefit to REA members and the public. REA Energy awards the grants to local governments and non-profit groups such as civic organizations, schools, volunteer fire departments, libraries, emergency medical services, museums and historical associations within the counties served by REA.
