As our communities face unprecedented challenges presented by COVID-19, we are finding new ways as a community to be together and lend a helping hand to our neighbors in need. For 2020, the PSE Foundation has launched a new $400,000 competitive grant program to aid the community and our customers in response and recovery of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Nonprofit and public charity organizations located within PSE’s 16-county service and operation areas can apply for a grant to be selected through a competitive process; deadlines are Aug. 31 and Oct. 1 with funding awarded in October and December respectively. The program is seeking to help fund nonprofit organizations that are providing critical community services as well as fund the programs and services received by community members.

This has been a challenging time for Puget Sound Energy customers and communities, and the PSE Foundation is seeking to provide more flexible support for organizations that are stepping up to help. Together, the PSE Foundation and PSE have already contributed more than $1.3 million towards mitigating impacts of COVID-19 across PSE’s service area communities.
