Three East Alabama nonprofit agencies are among the seven statewide who have received grant money from The Alabama Business Charitable Trust Fund. ABC announced more than $55,000 today in Nonprofit Energy Efficient Program grants. Etowah County Community Services in Gadsden, United Way of Etowah County in Gadsden, and East Central Alabama United Cerebral Palsy in Anniston all received a portion of the money. Alabama Power created the ABC Trust Fund in 1992. Since 2007, the fund has awarded more than $600,000 in NEEP grants to more than 65 different nonprofit organizations. The nonprofits use the money to make their facilities more energy efficient, which frees up more resources to help serve clients in need.
