Power of Community - Pedernales Electric Cooperative

PEC Community Grants


Twice a year, we award community grants to qualifying nonprofit organizations within our service area. Recipients are selected through a competitive application process, and the funds are made up of members’ contributions to the Power of Change program with the cooperative's support.


There are two funding cycles each year; April 1 and Oct. 1. All application materials, including an IRS determination letter, must be received by 5 p.m. on those dates. If the deadline falls on a weekend or holiday, it is extended to the next regular business day. The 2018 deadlines are April 2 and Oct. 1.
