Corn Belt Energy is accepting applications for our annual Education Grants Program. Six schools that serve children of Corn Belt Energy electric members will be eligible to receive a grant. Five of these schools will each be awarded $1,500 and one school will be awarded the $2,000 Jeff Reeves Memorial Education Grant to fund innovative programs that enrich students’ education; the school does not need to receive electricity from Corn Belt Energy to be eligible.
