The first Steps Forward Day occurred in spring 2015. Since then hundreds of employees have completed about 120 service projects in dozens of communities throughout the lower Colorado River basin. Leaders within the communities have told us some of the projects had been on their "to do" lists for years, but a lack of people or resources had prevented the communities from completing them.
What makes a suitable Steps Forward project?
A typical Steps Forward project will accommodate a team of volunteers who can work together to complete a task in a day. Suitable projects include painting, brush clearing, river and park cleanup, landscaping, library organization, and building and playground rehabilitation projects. Safety is a foundational value at LCRA and is a key consideration when selecting Steps Forward service projects.
How are projects chosen?
LCRA works with its wholesale power and water customers to identify service projects. Priority is given to projects in our customers' communities, and LCRA accepts applications for Steps Forward projects from city officials within those municipalities.
Can I submit a project for consideration?
LCRA is proud to serve a large basin. Because we want to ensure we have the resources available to safely complete each project we accept, and because priority is given to projects within our customers’ communities, we can only accept project requests from city officials affiliated with LCRA customers.
