Applications sought for Bray Cares grants

Applications will be accepted through 5 p.m. Oct. 15 for the latest round of grants from the Bray Cares Foundation.

Grants of $500 to $5,000 will be awarded to qualified,
tax-exempt organizations working to address housing needs in Mesa County. Grants will target projects that provide emergency shelter and rent assistance, offer affordable housing for those dealing with special needs and help seniors and veterans stay in their homes.

Now in its third year, the Bray Cares Foundation has awarded a total of $40,000 in grants. The foundation plans to award $35,000 this year to bring total grant distributions to $75,000 in celebration of the 75th year of business for Bray Real Estate in Grand Junction.

Bray Real Estate established the Bray Cares Foundation and works with the Western Colorado Community Foundation to raise funding and award grants to address housing needs in Mesa County.
