Grant applications

We invest in the improvement of the quality of life in our communities. The next application period for Community Grants will open October 1, 2021 and close October 30, 2021.

We are excited to announce the Foundation board has approved a plan to expand the Community Grants application period from one to three cycles annually. Community Grant applications will be accepted in February, June, and October. Award notifications will be sent approximately two months after each application period. With the addition of multiple application cycles, organizations may apply at a time which best suits their funding needs and fiscal calendars. We encourage you to make all requests of the LG&E and KU Foundation through the Community Grants program during one of these three periods.

Also, please be aware that if you are applying for event sponsorship support only, you are encouraged to use the new Event Sponsorship application, available October 1-30 as well.
