Entergy is a recognized leader in the nuclear power industry. Through the Safety Responders Fund, Entergy actively seeks opportunities to partner with first responders and the agencies and non-profits that serve the area where our employees live and work.
In considering grant requests, priority is placed first, on applicants who are directly involved in aspects of Indian Point Energy Center’s Emergency Response Plan and second, on applicants who support emergency response roles and functions within the ten-mile Emergency Planning Zone (EPZ) surrounding Indian Point Energy Center. Please check to make sure that your project meets the eligibility qualifications.
Grants from Entergy will be made to the following types of organizations:
- Non-profit organizations that are tax exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code (“Tax Code”), or
- Governmental units that hold nonprofit status similar to that of 501(c)(3) organizations, which may therefore be eligible.
Please complete each question in the application prior to submitting it.
