Make Our Communities Shine

Join us for an online information session to learn about Shine Award funding.

We’re inviting nonprofit organizations to apply for a Shine award for local projects that will impact the community through inclusive collaborations and equitable strategies. We’re seeking proposals that support zero carbon workforce development, environmental stewardship, inclusive economic development and STEM education in our service area. We’re eliminating all carbon emissions from our power supply by 2030, so all our customers will live in a Clean PowerCitySM.

Who is eligible to apply?

All applicants must be incorporated nonprofit organizations within SMUD’s service area. These include, but are not limited to community-based nonprofits, chambers of commerce, property-based improvement districts, neighborhood and homeowners associations. Collaboration and joint applications are encouraged.
