January 23, 2019
The Tucumcari MainStreet Corp. on Jan. 15 received $17,000 in Partnership Grant Program funds from Tucumcari Federal Savings and Loan Association and the Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas.
The funds were awarded to Tucumcari MainStreet during a ceremonial check presentation.
As part of Tucumcari MainStreet Corp.'s goal to encourage, foster and stimulate the preservation of downtown Tucumcari, board President Cooper Glover said the organization wants to take the small-town charm for which Tucumcari is known and breathe new life into downtown. The funds will be used to offset operating expenses, support educational opportunities for entrepreneurs and develop fundraising programs.
"We're trying to reinvest in our community and return it to how our residents remember it - a friendly place where everyone knows each other," Glover said. "The grant funds will help us achieve that goal."
It was the organization's second award from the program.
Tucumcari Federal Savings and Loan Association President David Hale said the Partnership Grant Program supports its commitment to serve the community.
"Because we are owned by our depositors and borrowers, we have a commitment to the community that has made us what we are today," Hale said. "The PGP funds help us fulfill that commitment."
