FARMINGTON, NEW MEXICO – Navajo Transitional Energy Company outlined requirements and the application process for $200,000 NTEC Community Benefit Fund during a workshop held at San Juan College on Wednesday morning, August 31. More than 70 people attended the two-hour workshop.
“We are happy to have our first Community Benefit Fund workshop and witnessing the overwhelming response it is obvious that a need exists and we want to help the organizations that provide for the Navajo people,” said Steve Grey, external and governmental affairs director.
The Community Benefit Fund was started by NTEC to help non-profit organizations, including Navajo Nation chapters, to fund community based projects and is open to non-profit organizations and chapters.
NTEC has made $200,000 available for grants from the organizations. Applying grants should fit into at least one of four categories: Education/Youth Development, Environment, Energy/Sustainability/Renewable, and Economic Development.
“We want to place a strong emphasis that NTEC is a part of the Navajo Nation and Four Corners Community and we believe these funding categories are a reflection of the pillars of NTEC,” Grey said.
The deadline for all applications is September 30 at 4 p.m. Applications may be emailed, submitted online or by hand to 205 N. Auburn Ave., Farmington. Mailed or faxed applications will not be accepted.

“We are excited to start this phase of NTEC’s development and add value to our organization in the communities,” Grey said.
