SDG&E  has announced the launch of the SAFE San Diego Initiative. This Initiative provides grant funding, by invitation, to non-profit organizations in the SDG&E service territory whose programs and services support emergency preparedness and safety.

SDG&E’s commitment to safety and emergency preparedness goes well beyond providing safe, reliable, and increasingly renewable energy to our customers. In the face of unpredictable and often extreme weather conditions such as prolonged drought, higher temperatures, and natural disasters including wildfires and flooding, our region is increasingly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. SDG&E’s SAFE San Diego Giving Initiative supports organizations that educate and prepare communities, strengthen the capacity of emergency response and help underserved, hard to reach communities.

SDG&E is pleased to invite your organization to apply for a SDG&E SAFE San Diego grant up to $2,500.  Online grant applications will be accepted through April 2, for support of emergency preparedness and safety programs provided by the following types of organizations:

  • First response volunteer agencies, such as the volunteer fire departments and volunteer law enforcement organizations;
  • Emergency response agencies including local Fire Safe Councils and Community Emergency Response Teams that provide disaster preparedness training, fire safety and/or disaster medical operations;
  • Local charities that provide safety or disaster response support programs, resources, and/or education.

Organizations wishing to submit an application must complete an online application for the 2019 SDG&E SAFE San Diego Initiative by the April 2 deadline.
