Granting of Funds

Your completion of this grant application does not guarantee that the IURC shall award grant funds.  Should the IURC provide a grant award, it will do so in writing.  The IURC shall make every attempt to respond to application requests within thirty days. 

Applicants shall be required to enter into a fully executed Grant agreement prior to the provision of Underground Plant Protection Account funds.  A sample Grant agreement is available here.

Please note that due to state procurement rules, a grant agreement is not necessary for grants of $5,000 or less. However, the IURC still requires a completed and approved grant application.
