The Foundation is now accepting applications for the UniBank September 11th Emergency Personnel Education Fund.

The Foundation welcomes grant proposals that help local emergency personnel become better prepared in the following ways:
- Purchases of critical equipment
- Practical training and educational opportunities
- Preference for educational opportunities that are available to counterpart organizations in Blackstone Valley
Organizations that deploy emergency service teams in the towns of the Blackstone Valley: Millbury, Grafton, Northbridge, Upton, Hopedale, Mendon, Blackstone, Millville, Uxbridge, Douglas and Sutton are encouraged to apply. Grant awards do not typically exceed $1,000.
