“MRHD is pleased to award grants to 35 non-profits and governmental agencies, particularly now, when funding is so difficult to raise,” said Stacy Harmelink, President of MRHD.
The non-profit’s Grant Committee reviewed dozens of grant applications before recommending funding for this year’s 35 recipients.
The committee’s recommendations received approval of MRHD’s full Board of Directors.

MRHD said that an additional $2 million has been pledged to cultural, fine arts, and recreational projects.
