The mission of Habitat for Humanity of the Greater Harrisburg Area is working together to build, rehabilitate, and repair houses, which ensures simple, decent, and affordable housing for low-income families in Central Pennsylvania. Direct Energy strives to harness its energy expertise to make a difference in people’s lives, and that’s exactly what the company does via its Reduce Your Use for Good nonprofit energy efficiency grant program.
Habitat for Humanity received a $2,500 energy efficiency grant from Direct Energy on December 13, 2013 after submitting a short video describing the nonprofit’s mission to www.ReduceYourUseForGood.com. They will be using the funds to rehabilitate homes of low income families in the central Pennsylvania area by replacing roofs, repairing water heaters, and preparing homes for winter.
There are more $2,500 grants available through the Reduce Your Use program. Nonprofits must have 501c3 status and be in a Direct Energy service area. Nonprofits do not have to be a Direct Energy customer. If your nonprofit organization wants to be considered for one of these energy efficiency grants, please submit your video here. To learn what approaches have been successful in the past, please view past submissions here.
