Continental Divide Electric Cooperative is accepting "Sharing Success" grant applications from 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations. Applicants must provide services within CDEC’s territorial boundaries and be members of the co-op.

The annual $5,000 “Sharing Success” grant is made possible by CDEC’s governing board of trustees, in partnership with CoBank – a national non-profit cooperative bank owned by the rural American co-ops it services, including CDEC.

Grant funds must be used to benefit a community or communities that receive service from CDEC in one or
more of the following (4) ways:

1. Energy Efficiency and/or Renewable Energy – Grant funds can be used for an organization’s project that promotes the efficient use of energy, such as weatherization. Funds can be used for planning, developing or constructing a renewable energy source.

2. Education – Grant funds can be used for an organization’s project that benefits students in grades K-12 or students enrolled in an accredited New Mexico college or university within CDEC’s service territory.

3. Environment – Grant funds can be used for an organization’s project that benefits the environment.

4. Economic Development – Grant funds can be used for an organization’s project that promotes or creates economic development.

This year, all nonprofit organizations are eligible, so long as they are located within CDEC's service territory and their services directly benefit co-op members. 

Applicants have to be federally recognized as 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations in good standing, active account holders with CDEC, and not a previous Sharing Success grant recipient.

Select organizations that are not designated a 501(c)(3) may also be eligible. These organizations include schools and government organizations such as counties or municipalities and their agencies or departments, as long as the grant will be used to serve a public purpose consistent with program guidelines listed on the application. Organizations that are political in nature, limit their activities based on religious affiliation, or discriminate do not qualify.
