Steps Forward

Steps Forward Day is a way for LCRA to give back to its customers and partner with them on projects that help their communities. During the annual day of service, LCRA employees help complete projects like cleaning parks, improving playgrounds, painting community buildings and athletic field equipment, and improving landscaping with new plants and mulch. Steps Forward Day 2024 will be Friday, April 12.

Since we launched the program, hundreds of our employees have worked on more than 245 community projects from the Hill Country to the Texas Gulf Coast as part of Steps Forward Day.
