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 2021 will be Friday, April 9. The deadline for project applications for Steps Forward Day 2021 is Dec. 4, 2020.

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. All LCRA COVID-19 safety protocols will be followed.

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 2018 and 2019.

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.
