LADWP is pleased to open the application period for a second round of grants to local non-profit organizations for community outreach, research, & public education activities to improve energy efficiency and water conservation in our communities. Seventeen grants of $45,000 each are proposed to be funded by the LADWP, pending approval of the Board of Water and Power Commissioners.
Building upon the success of the ARRA (American Recovery and Reinvestment Act)-funded grants, the proposed round of funding will further engage residents and businesses in reducing their energy and water use, and allow them to benefit from lower utility bills. The grant program will assist non-profit organizations to affect behavior change in populations that may not be addressed through more traditional communication strategies. We hope to learn new and effective methods of communicating from this process that can be applied to LADWP and other City programs in the future.
All applications must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5:00 p.m. on October 31, 2012.
