Innovation in Schools Grant Program
Plateau offers opportunities for schools and school personnel within its Cooperative service areas to obtain financial support to improve teaching and learning activities. School districts, individual schools, departments within schools, groups of classroom teachers, or individual teachers may request a grant to a maximum of $5,000 to encourage innovation in teaching with a special emphasis in the use of broadband Internet as a learning tool. Multiple requests from the same school or school district will be considered, as long as the requests are distinctly separate and for different purposes.

Public Safety Education Grants
Rural public safety agencies are often at a disadvantage in expanding their knowledge and meeting mandated training requirements due to a lack of funds available from the municipalities or counties in which they serve. Most rural communities have volunteers who assist in both fire-fighting and emergency medical response.
To assist with the training and educational costs associated with maintaining well-trained and certified law enforcement and fire protection officers, Plateau awards grants to rural communities, municipalities, and public safety departments (whether paid or volunteer) associated with the communities within the Cooperative service area.
To better strengthen and develop communities served by the Cooperative, a “no-match” grant fund has been established, “Public Safety Education Grant Fund”, which will award up to $5,000 per award to be used for those purposes described under the eligibility requirements.

Nuestros Vecinos "Our Neighbors" Matching Grant Program
Rural communities are often at a disadvantage in expanding jobs, creating opportunities for new businesses, or retaining existing small business operations. Barriers associated with geographic isolation, low market density, deteriorating infrastructure, and high unemployment rates underscore the need for community development. To better strengthen and develop communities served by the Cooperative, a matching grant program has been established, Nuestros Vecinos—“Our Neighbors” (“the Grant Program”).
Matching grants are available to rural communities, municipalities, or other non-profit groups that have a desire to remove barriers that inhibit growth and development—especially those obstacles that may hinder economic development. To demonstrate the company’s intent to be a good neighbor, a fund has been established that will allow up to $10,000 to be matched for those purposes.
Matching Grant Categories
*Applications will only be considered if funds are available from the Grant Program. The committee will then recommend grant requests based on availability of funds to the Board of Directors. The Board may also impose specific repayment provisions that would require repayment of all or a portion of the awarded grant in the event that grant recipient ceases operations within a specified period of time
