School EmPOWERment Grants

Walton EMC offers educational grants to schools and classroom teachers for a myriad of uses that further instructional programs. Any public school located within Walton EMC’s service territory is eligible to apply. Private schools can apply as well if they are served by Walton EMC electric service. Applications are generally accepted during August and September with grants being awarded in December. Watch for a mailing to your school with details.

Schools throughout Walton EMC’s 10-county service area have received more than $2 million through the grant program. The money comes from unclaimed capital credit refunds.
