About LCRA Steps Forward


Can I submit a project for consideration?
LCRA primarily 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.

Steps Forward Day 2023 was Friday, April 14. LCRA will begin accepting project applications for Steps Forward Day 2024 in fall 2023.

What makes a suitable Steps Forward project?
Safety is a foundational value at LCRA and is a key consideration when selecting Steps Forward service projects.

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, park cleanup, landscaping, trail repairs, library organization, cemetery cleanup, and minor building and playground rehabilitation projects.

For project ideas, read more about projects from 20212022 and 2023.

How are projects chosen?
LCRA reviews each project application and assigns a team lead to visit the work site to discuss the project’s scope, needed equipment and safety issues. After our internal volunteer signup period ends, we will notify applicants if their project is formally accepted as part of Steps Forward Day.
