NLPD awarded $1,000 for AEDs

Area nonprofits and communities receive over $25,000 from Alliant Energy’s Foundation

CEDAR RAPIDS– A total of 15 area organizations received community grants totaling $25,500 from Alliant Energy’s Foundation.
The grants fund projects in four key areas, which resonate with Alliant Energy’s core values: Hunger and Housing, Workforce Readiness, Environmental Stewardship, and Diversity, Safety and Well Being.
Among the 139 awarded by Alliant Energy’s Foundation for the fall grant cycle, totaling over $345,000, the City of North Liberty Police Department received $1,000 for automated external defibrillators (AED).
“The services and programs our nonprofit partners provide are needed now more than ever,” said Alliant Energy Foundation Executive Director Julie Bauer. “We are proud to support these organizations through our grants program. The entire community benefits when we work together and find creative opportunities that help make life better for others.”
In 2020, Alliant Energy’s Foundation provided over $895,000 to 376 organizations through its Community Grants Program. In addition, its annual Drive Out Hunger event generated $385,000 for seven food banks, enough to purchase 1.15 million meals for local families.
Grants and donations are funded solely by Alliant Energy shareowners.
