Resilience Cayman Launches Utility Relief Programme
Project supported by R3 Grant
Resilience Cayman is pleased to announce a new utility relief programme in partnership with Caribbean Utilities Company (CUC) and supported by a CI$50,000 grant from R3 Cayman Foundation. Our Programme provides a one-time grant ( up to CI$250) to eligible low-income customers who are struggling to pay their electricity bill.
R3 Cayman Foundation donates a total of $110,000 CI to Cayman's Acts of Random Kindness, Meals on Wheels, Feed our Future, Cayman Food Bank, and Resilience Cayman to help support the island's meal and food voucher programs.
Resilience Cayman and ICCI (International College of the Cayman Islands) have partnered to establish a new Youth Internship Program in an effort to connect Caymanian students seeking work experience with businesses in need of support as the local economy reopens.
Residence owners at the Great House have approved emergency grants totalling $51,740 to assist local non-profit agencies, addressing immediate needs in Grand CAyman relating to COVID-19. Grants will be provided to Feed Our Future, ARK, Jasmine, Cayman Islands ReD Cross, Resilience Cayman, and National Trust Cayman Islands.
The Cayman Islands Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring 'Resilience Cayman', an initiative established to help connect non-profits, entrepreneurs and businesses with tools, funds and volunteers to identify, assess, and meet community needs as they emerge during times of crisis.
