Grants to Alabama nonprofit organizations and government entities for activities that benefit underserved communities. Funding is intended for projects in the areas of education, environment, arts, culture, health and human services, and community life.

Below are general questions to help determine if the organization is a candidate for an Alabama Power Foundation grant.

- Does the project address a need in at least one of the following areas: education, community life, health and human services, arts and culture or the environment?
- Could the project lead to permanent, enduring improvements in a community or the state?
- Will a diverse group collaborate on the project to achieve common goals?
- Can the program or idea be duplicated in other communities?
- Does the submitting organization clearly demonstrate sound fiscal management and accountability?
- Could the organization attract multiple sources of support for the project?
- Does the project address underserved segments of the population, such as racial or ethnic minorities, the impoverished and underprivileged or communities with fewer opportunities?

Grants will be considered for two amount categories: up to $49,999 and starting at $50,000.

Applicants must be a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization or a government entity.
