Lozier Community Grants

The intent of the Lozier Community Grants program is to give back to the communities where we do business. The program will be managed by an employee committee at each site.  Grant applications will be submitted online and reviewed by foundation staff for IRS eligibility before being forwarded to each site’s employee committee for review.   Each grant application should be evaluated and awarded with the same ethics and integrity that we apply to our everyday operations.
