Duke Energy Powerful Communities: Storm Resiliency Grants

Saturday, June 15, 2019

After a year of record-setting weather events – from tornadoes and flooding to ice storms and hurricanes – these grants will help North Carolina communities increase their resiliency to these major weather events through advanced preparation and planning.

This is a one-time-only opportunity for Storm Resiliency Grants. Grant applications may include, but are not limited to, projects that focus on:

  • Specialized training for first responders for severe weather scenarios
  • Organized planning initiatives for communities to prepare for extreme weather
  • Equipment necessary for severe weather rescues to preserve human life
  • Community storm preparedness trainings, materials, kits or shelters
  • Emergency communication tools for severe weather scenarios
  • Improved outcomes for low-income communities experiencing extreme weather

All regions of the state served by Duke Energy Carolinas or Duke Energy Progress are eligible to apply. Communities impacted by severe weather in recent years and programs serving diverse populations will be given priority.

Applicants may request funds up to $50,000. Both nonprofits and governmental entities are eligible to apply.
