“The FRRR team and grants administration were wonderful in the whole phase from application, project delivery to final acquittal. The communications provided by FRRR were great, I felt up to date and aware of what was required throughout the funding/project. The COVID-19 disaster was also in the middle of the roll out of our project, so the longer time frame to complete the grant was appreciated and ideal. We are so excited for the opportunities this grant has provided.”
