Sabathani Secures $6.4 Million in Funding for Community Energy Project 

Sabathani Community Center has reached a major milestone in our mission to create a more sustainable and thriving community. We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded $6.4 million by the State of Minnesota to support our innovative Community Energy Project. Read the full press release here. 

A Landmark Achievement  

The generous funding includes $6 million dedicated to the development of a state-of-the-art district energy geothermal system. This system will play a crucial role in reducing pollution and carbon emissions, lowering energy costs, and creating new, family-sustaining jobs in the green economy. Additionally, $400,000 has been allocated to our Workforce Development Training Center, which will continue to empower local residents with the skills needed for sustainable employment in the rapidly evolving energy sector. 

Gratitude to Our Supporters  

We are immensely grateful for the unwavering support from our partners, advocates, and the entire community. Your letters of support, lobbying efforts, and advocacy have been instrumental in securing this crucial funding. This achievement would not have been possible without your collective efforts. Each one of you played a vital part in turning our vision into reality. 

Looking Ahead 

While this funding marks a significant step forward, our journey is not yet complete. We still need to raise an additional $8.5 million to fully realize the Community Energy Project. However, with this new momentum, we are confident that we can achieve our goal and create a safer, more sustainable community. 

Join Us in Our Mission 

As we move forward, we will continue to collaborate closely with our partners and supporters. Together, we can pave the way for a greener, more prosperous future. Stay tuned for more updates on our progress and learn how you can contribute to this transformative project. 

This is an exciting time for Sabathani Community Center, and we are thrilled to share this journey with you. Thank you for being an integral part of our mission. Onward to a brighter, greener future!
