“Boost grants are great,” Kim Sipes, LCCF Grants Chair, shared. “Even though these grants are smaller, they are able to be processed more quickly and have a more immediate effect in our community. Boost grants also have more flexibility which is particularly beneficial to smaller organizations. This year’s Boost Grants cover a wide variety of needs from developing a tree nursery to educating expectant parents.”

The 2022 Boost Grants were funded by the Patrick & Sharon Robbins Humanitarian Fund, M. Jeanette Norman Fund, LCCF Education Fund, David Allen Jacobs Community Fund, Sargent Family Fund, Smithville Charitable Foundation Fund for Lawrence County, Betty R. Hilderbrand Bedford Parks, and Recreation Fund, and the Ferguson Community Fund.
