Since its inception in 2017, the CFC and NCSC International Projects Matching Grants Program has awarded more than $1 million to statewide associations that sponsor electrification projects around the world.
CFC Gov. Sheldon Peterson (center) presents checks totaling $95,000 to sponsor about half of the costs of Montana’s electrification project to bring electricity to a village in Bolivia. The funds were presented today to NRECA Vice President Chris Christensen (left) and MECA CEO Gary Wiens. Mr. Christensen is a trustee at NorVal Electric Cooperative in Glasgow, Montana. The funds come as a crew from Montana works this week in Bolivia on the electrification project.
