LCRA Accepting Community Grant Applications Through January


Applications for grants of up to $50,000 to support first responders and community projects are now available from the Lower Colorado River Authority, the agency announced recently. The grants can be used to improve fire stations and provide new equipment for emergency response teams, as well as improve local community centers, sports fields, museums, parks and more.

LCRA awards Community Development Partnership Program grants for community projects twice a year to nonprofits such as 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.

Applications for the next round of grants are available online at and must be submitted by midnight Jan. 31. Most grants are for $25,000 or less, but several grants of up to $50,000 are awarded every grant cycle.

The projects must benefit or be available to an entire community and improve the value of a capital asset through building, renovating or purchasing equipment.
