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.

Read about recent recipients.


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 2017 deadlines are April 3 and Oct. 2.

Applications for the next round will be available Aug. 1.

Applications may be submitted by email to communitysupport@peci.com, via e-fax at 512-853-8014 or mailed to:

Pedernales Electric Cooperative
Attn: Director, Connections & Community Engagement
