Grant Opportunities

Each year, NCC commits nearly $50,000 in donations, sponsorships and scholarships in and around the communities we serve. Grants to local organizations are a large priority of these commitments. We are excited to again offer the following grant opportunities:

Rural Development Finance Corporation (RDFC) Grant

NCC and the other Rural ILECs in ND are given $2,000 to distribute to community-owned entities, non-profits, and other community-based projects. Funds available up to $2,000. This grant requires a $4 of your organization’s funds to every $1 of RDFC funds awarded. Applications are due back to NCC by October 15, 2020.
