HOW DOES IT WORK? 

The Paradox Community Trust (PCT) serves two purposes. First, it acts as a regional resource for Paradox area to identify unique opportunities such as grants and to create partnerships for community improvement projects, including broadband expansion and small business technical assistance program. Second, it serves as an umbrella organization for each participating Paradox regional community (Rico, Norwood, and Nucla/Naturita/Paradox) to create and build their local permanent trust funds.  Funds raised from donors from specific communities will only be made available for that community’s use.
