Get the POWER

Local non-profit agencies and community organizations can receive up to $10,000 in grant funds from the Trico Electric POWER Grant program. But you must act fast – the application deadline is Nov. 1 at 3 p.m.

Groups that provide food and basic needs to children are encouraged to apply. A total of $40,000 will be given. Grants will be evaluated on a competitive basis and awards will be made for a single year.

Organizations do not have to be located in Trico’s service area to be eligible; however, the organization must demonstrate that the funds will be used to assist a significant number of children and youth in the service area.

POWER Grant guidelines, applications and additional information are available at Trico’s web site. Additional information is also available by contacting Romi Carrell Wittman, Director of Communications, rwittman@trico.coop.

Since the inception of the POWER Grants program in 2008, Trico has given $240,000 to local non-profits providing critical services to the community.

Trico Electric Cooperative, Inc., is a not-for-profit, member-owned electric cooperative headquartered in Marana. Established in 1945, Trico serves approximately 40,000 customers across Southern Arizona, including Marana, Mt. Lemmon, Saddlebrooke, Picture Rocks, Three Points, Sahuarita, Corona de Tucson and Arivaca.
