The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) is opening the application period for the Community Partnership Grant that will be awarded to our local non-profit organizations. This is LADWP’s fifth round of grants and will be used for new community outreach and public education activities to improve energy efficiency and water conservation throughout Los Angeles.
Building upon the success of the previous four grant cycles, this fifth round of funding will further engage City of Los Angeles residents and businesses in reducing their energy and water use, and allow them to benefit from lower utility bills. The program will assist non-profit organizations to affect behavior change in populations that may not be adequately addressed through more traditional communication strategies.
Applications should describe the organization’s proposed approach to engaging residents and businesses in their local community. LADWP is particularly interested in projects that result in LADWP customers accessing energy efficiency and/or water conservation incentive programs, or changing their energy and/or water use behavior. Collaborations among organizations and innovation are encouraged. As necessary, LADWP will provide grant recipients with content language and guidelines for energy efficiency and water conservation messages which will include information on relevant services, incentives, rebates, financing and tips for residents and businesses.
Applications are due by 3:00 pm on Friday, January 13, 2017.
