Please note: Most organizations applied and accepted the fund after the pipeline project was complete. The funds are also not used to pay organizations off for any benefits to Williams Partners.
Without further ado, the full list of all grant recipients.
Williams – a major operator of natural gas infrastructure in New York – today announced the latest recipients of the Rockaway Community Grant Program, awarding grants to 25 local organizations.
The Rockaway Community Grant program was designed to benefit the environment and local communities in which Williams operates its Transco natural gas pipeline near Rockaway, N.Y. The company has awarded nearly $900,000 since the grant program was first initiated in 2014.
