At PG&E, we recognize that many communities continue to face economic challenges and difficulty attracting the resources necessary to support economic development and job creation. That's why we created the Economic Vitality Grant Program.
As part of our more than $2.5 million charitable commitment to economic development initiatives, PG&E’s 2014 Economic Vitality Grant Program is investing $200,000 in programs designed to boost local job creation and promote economic opportunity throughout our service area.
Grants of up to $20,000 will be awarded for programs in the following four general categories:
The Economic Vitality Grant Program is funded entirely by PG&E’s shareholders.
The competitive grant program determines funding based upon the extent to which an applicant’s project or program demonstrates the ability to generate jobs and other economic impacts. Community need is also a strong factor.
All questions should be directed to CommunityRelations@exchange.pge.com. Please include “Economic Vitality Grant Program” in the subject line.
