National Grilling Month Have a Sizzling Time During National Grilling Month

Grilling goes back to the caveman era, and the first Weber grill was introduced in 1950. This method of cooking continues to be so popular that it now has its own celebratory month. During July, experiment with how many different items you can grill — from beef, pork, chicken, seafood, and fish to a rainbow of fruits and vegetables. Don't forget grilled pizza!

The Foundation for Rural Service (FRS) was established in 1994 in cooperation with NTCA – The Rural Broadband Association to sustain and enhance the quality of life throughout rural America by advancing an understanding of rural telecommunications. As part of its ongoing commitment to rural communities across the country, FRS offers aid for communities served by NTCA members through its annual Community Grants Program. These grants are designed to provide support to a variety of local efforts to build and sustain a high quality of life in rural America.

The grants support a variety of projects concentrated in the four major categories listed below. You may also visit the FRS website at this link to see examples of previous awarded projects, many of them in Kansas!
  • Business and Economic Development – Devise a plan to turn your community into a global phenomenon by growing small or existing businesses, developing new ones and implementing a job creation program that attracts key talent from your community or from skilled individuals interested in relocating to small town America.

  • Community Development – Develop an outreach program that helps to promote advancing technology skills of your community members, incorporates innovation into learning, raises the visibility of your community's talent and artistry, and places your town on everyone's bucket list as the place to visit.

  • Education – Support advances in education by helping your schools get technology (computers, smart boards, etc.) in the classroom, build resources for curriculum development, strengthen extracurricular activities and programs, and promote distance learning programs.

  • Telecommunications Applications – Show how you plan to turn your community into a technological powerhouse by promoting the implementation and use of broadband-enabled applications for telehealth, education, government services, safety and security, and efficient energy distribution and use.
Completed applications must be returned no later than August 15, 2022. We will then forward all applications directly to FRS on the applicant's behalf. Applications received after this date will not be accepted. If you should have any questions, feel free to contact our office at 658-2111 or (800) 432-7607 or by email to kayla.cullens@wilsoncom.net.
