Consolidated Telcom is a member of the Rural Development Finance Corporation (RDFC). As a result, communities in our service area were eligible to apply for a grant of up to $2,000 for community-based projects. RDFC is making these funds available in order that more people become aware of their larger loan program that funds community-based projects and non-profit entities with low interest loans.
RDFC has recently granted $1,000 to the Regent Ambulance Service. The grant funds will be used to purchase a generator and natural gas heating to run during a power outage or disaster. The Regent Ambulance Service is the designated disaster center for the surrounding area and will be able to better accommodate the citizens in the area.
