NOTE: Entergy New Orleans is directing the remainder of its 2021 contributions budget toward Hurricane Ida assistance and therefore will not accept additional grant applications until January 2022.
Through Entergy’s Micro Grants Program, we accept requests for up to $1,000 in all program areas: arts and culture; community improvement/enrichment; economic development, education/literacy, environment and healthy families.
Please make sure to submit your application at least three months prior to the time the requested funds are needed. We receive many applications throughout the year, and we need to allow sufficient time to review each request carefully. Once you have submitted your application online, please allow at least 8 (eight) to 12 (twelve) weeks for review and notification of the result of your request. If by that time Entergy has not contacted you, please feel free to call the appropriate contributions coordinator for your geographic area.
- In considering requests for grants, priority is placed on programs in specific counties/parishes. If you have questions about this, please contact the Entergy contributions coordinator in your area.
