CenterPoint Energy recently awarded the city of Carlos a $2,500 Community Partnership Grant for radio communications equipment for emergency responders that will be used to serve the community.

"We are pleased that our Community Partnership Grants provide financial support to cities in our service area, enabling them to address the needs of their community," said Joe Vortherms, division vice president of regional operations for CenterPoint Energy.

The program awards grants up to $2,500 for safety equipment or safety-related projects to support emergency response or safety. Priority is given to franchised communities that have not received a grant in the last year.
