Buckeye Council Okays $43,000 to NonProfit Groups Serving Residents

Buckeye Council Okays NonProfit Grants that provide services to city residents.

A dozen area non-profit groups applied for funding, and a committee reviewed the applications before recommending the six to the full Council.

The recommendations were based on certain criteria, including the direct impact to Buckeye residents, the demand and service needs of the organization and community, and, if the organization had been selected before, how previous awards were used.
