TNMP Power Grants Open for 2023


Applications open soon for qualifying nonprofits for 2023 TNMP Power Grants, made possible by the TNMP Fund.

A total of $145,000 will be available for grants that strengthen communities served by Texas-New Mexico Power. Individual grants will continue to be funded for amounts up to $10,000.

“Texas is a great place to live and work. Supporting the efforts of nonprofits is part of our shared responsibility to better this state, especially in the areas we serve. The TNMP Power Grants is our way of trying to make a meaningful difference,” said Keith Nix, VP of Operations.

Grants can be used by qualifying 501(c)(3) organizations in TNMP’s service area, including those affiliated with schools, to fund a broad variety of projects, including (but not limited to):
