CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (Jan. 21, 2014) – Rockwell Collins is currently seeking proposals for its 2014 Green Communities grant program. Launched 10 years ago, the program helps fund environmental projects in communities where the company operates. Applications will be accepted through Feb. 14, 2014, with grant winners being announced in conjunction with activities on or around Earth Day, April 22, 2014.

To apply for a grant, a nonprofit group must be teamed with a Rockwell Collins employee or retiree and the projects must improve the environmental condition of a community in which Rockwell Collins operates. In addition to traditional conservation and restoration projects, the Green Communities program will also emphasize the rebuilding of communities through restoring environmental habitats that have been damaged by natural disasters.

“Green Communities has funded grassroots projects in the communities where our employees live and work since 2004 with a total of 398 grants awarded during that time,” said Jenny Becker, community relations manager for Rockwell Collins. “Grant recipients, working with our employees, have built strong bonds between our company and their communities through the years.”

Grant awards will range from $500 to $2,500. Only projects conducted or sponsored by qualified non-profit organizations or public/government entities are eligible.

A grant review committee will judge project applications based on criteria including:

  • Tangible environmental benefits of the project
  • Sustainability of the project benefits
  • Participation in the project by Rockwell Collins employees and/or retirees
  • Completion of the project within the calendar year of the grant award
  • Agreement to participate in publicizing the grant and the completed project
