Roundup for Safety

If you have a safety hazard in your neighborhood, Flathead Electric's Roundup for Safety program may be able to help.  Roundup for Safety's board of directors evaluates applications and awards grants to 501c3 non profit organizations to help pay for worthwhile community safety projects.

Funds for the program come from Cooperative members who participate by allowing their monthly bills to be rounded up to the next dollar. The average cost for each participating member is $6 per year. Roundup for Safety asks you to look for neighborhood projects to consider.

If you find a safety problem that needs fixing, Roundup for Safety could be the answer. Apply online or pick up an application at the Cooperative offices in Libby or Kalispell.

Roundup for Safety awards grants to non-profit groups throughout the Cooperative's service area to help pay for safety-related projects. Participating members allow their monthly bills to be "rounded up" to the nearest dollar, with the extra money going into a fund administered by an independent board of directors. Since it began, the program has awarded more than $500,000 in grant money.

Grant applications are available at Cooperative offices in Kalispell and Libby and here, online.

For more information, call Mike Radel at 751-4429.
