Funding Report


In partnership with Dominion Energy’s EnergyShare program, more than $3,500,000 in utility bill assistance was provided to nearly 8,500 households in the areas we serve. EnergyShare expanded its guidelines and funding to provide even more energy bill assistance to those in the community facing financial hardship caused by the pandemic. In addition, EnergyShare allocated $500,000 to provide relief to small businesses, non-profits, and houses of worship impacted by the pandemic in our areas.
