March 9, 2018 /3BL Media/ - The Greenlee County Community Investment Fund (CIF) awarded grants totaling $250,000 to the Greenlee County community in Arizona.

Recipients were selected by the Greenlee County CIF, which is overseen by a committee of community leaders assembled by the Freeport-McMoRan Community Partnership Panel, to identify and address community needs in health care, education, environment, economic development and transportation with positive, sustainable solutions.

The CIF was established in 2011, as part of Freeport-McMoRan’s objectives to empower communities to develop and identify projects that would help ensure their self-sufficiency beyond the presence of Freeport-McMoRan operations.
