Community groups invited to apply for LCRA grants
Thursday, December 15, 2022 by Tai Moses
The Lower Colorado River Authority is offering grants of up to $50,000 for community projects throughout LCRA’s service areas in Central Texas. The applications will be up online starting in January and the deadline is Jan. 31. While most of the community grants are in the neighborhood of $25,000 or less, several grants of up to $50,000 are awarded every year. According to LCRA’s news release, “Eligible organizations include volunteer fire departments, emergency responders, local governments, schools, libraries, civic groups, museums and other tax-exempt nonprofit organizations. The grants are not available to individuals, for-profit entities, professional associations, social service projects or limited-use facilities.” LCRA grants have been used previously “to purchase new vehicles, equipment and protective gear for first responders; renovations to community centers, libraries and arts venues; and improvements to parks, youth athletic facilities and outdoor community trails and exhibits.”
