Grants

In this age of Covid-19, even decisions made by the Homer Foundation are taking the pandemic into consideration. The organization last week announced the grants awarded through the City of Homer’s Grant Program to the 13 local nonprofits that applied this year, totaling $39,500.
    While the amount is about $4,000 less than the 20-year average, it is in line with recent years’ grants, according to Homer Foundation Executive Director Mike Miller.

Homer Volunteer Fire Department has started a remodeling project to improve their Pioneer Avenue building.

Fire Chief Bob Painter says the project has been underway for about two weeks. He says the remodel is the result of two and half years of planning.

The $1,000,000 project was funded by the City of Homer after the department was removed from the plans for a new public safety building.
