Entergy grants now available to support environmentally beneficial projects


As we celebrate Earth Month, Entergy remains steadfast in our commitment to creating a cleaner, more resilient energy future for our customers and communities. Now in its 23rd year, Entergy’s Environmental Initiatives Fund, or EIF, is a component of our business strategy. The EIF provides $1 million in shareholder-funded grants each year to support environmental projects and solutions that benefit our region.

“Since 2001, our fund has awarded nearly $42 million in Entergy shareholder contributions to support environmentally beneficial projects and programs across our service area of Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas,” said Kelli Dowell, director of environmental policy. “We're proud to partner with community organizations to reduce environmental risk and ensure a cleaner, brighter tomorrow for our communities.”

Do you have a project idea that promotes conservation, energy efficiency or delivers environmental benefits? Submit your proposal for funding consideration through this 2023 request for proposal. All proposals must be received by midnight Central time, May 31, 2023.

Our Sustainability and Environmental Policy organization manages the EIF, evaluates project proposals, solicits approval from company leaders and awards funding to the most impactful project ideas.

Funding will be granted to proposed projects based on:

  • Potential to create environmental benefits.
  • Projects within the utility service area will be given preference.
  • Project quality.
  • Proponent’s standing, reputation and co-party risk.
  • The likelihood that a project will not move forward without EIF funding.
  • Cost.
  • Marketing and public relations opportunities.
  • Project-specific terms and conditions.
  • Uniqueness, innovative quality or opportunity to expand into self-funding projects.
