Foundation solicits grant applications
The E-470 Transportation Safety Foundation is soliciting grant applications for its 2014 grant program, which will distribute up to seven $2,500 grants. The foundation will distribute as much as $17,500 to nonprofit organizations or government agencies supporting transportation safety programs. Preference is given to funding organizations or programs located in or adjacent to the E-470 corridor area.
That area encompasses E-470's member jurisdictions: Adams, Arapahoe, and Douglas counties and the municipalities of Parker, Aurora, Brighton, Commerce City and Thornton. A nonprofit organization or government agency can access grant program guidelines and an application by visiting the foundation's web page on www.expresstoll.com. The deadline to submit an application is 4 p.m. March 31.
