RACINE — Case Construction Equipment has issued a call for entries for the 2018 Dire States Equipment Grant.
This is the third year that Case Construction Equipment has offered the grant, which provides one winning community with $25,000 in free equipment use to help offset the costs of building or repairing a critical piece of local infrastructure.
Originally launched in 2016, representatives of municipal, county and other local governments are eligible to apply for the grant. Entrants will be asked to describe the project and provide a detailed assessment of how that local piece of infrastructure will benefit the community.
Examples of suitable infrastructure projects include road/bridge repair or construction, utility pipe replacement, erosion control along lakes and rivers, wastewater system improvements and park/recreational construction. All projects that fall within the 16 core categories of infrastructure, as identified by ASCE in its Infrastructure Report Card, will be considered.
Submissions can be completed at DireStates.com/Grant. The deadline for entry is Friday, March 30, and winners will be announced in April.
