This is not a cash grant but rather the commitment of WLBC resources – the station with a coverage area that reaches nearly half a million people.  We can only award a select number of grants each year. Those organizations awarded a WLBC Hometown Heroes Grant will receive the most significant commitment of our resources. For the worthwhile causes that do not receive a grant, we will frequently support their efforts by providing access to our community calendar and announcements.  No other area other media organization has our extensive reach; therefore, we receive many deserving requests.  As a locally owned business committed to using our resources judiciously to give back to the community, we ask those groups seeking our support to help us determine how best to dedicate our efforts.  Each month one community organization will be the recipient of this Grant.

Those requests that address improving issues related to health, education, and economic development will receive special consideration.  We also look to support programs or initiatives that address a specific social condition and have a plan that can accomplish stated objectives.

For consideration, the organization or cause must be one of the following:

  • A 501c3 (or other designated not-for-profit organization) and can provide documentation
  • An educational, government, or city agency
  • In an emergency, crisis situation
  • An event that is free and open to the public

The Deadline to submit is February 28th, 2023.
