Entergy micro grants can be used for smaller projects aimed at fostering education and literacy in low income populations. Micro grants feature a easier, streamlined application process and target smaller nonprofit agencies.

In Massachusetts, projects serving populations in Plymouth and Franklin (Towns of Northfield, Bernardston, Leyden, Warwick, Greenfield, Gill and Colrain) counties will receive preferential consideration.
