Dominion Energy offers $1 million in critical community needs grants

dominion energyDominion Energy is inviting nonprofit organizations across the company’s footprint to apply for grants of up to $25,000 each to meet critical community needs in communities. For the fourth consecutive year, the Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation has pledged $1 million to help meet critical needs for food, housing, medicine or medical services.

“Whether it’s food for homebound seniors, shelter for homeless families or free dental check-ups, the need for basic necessities is great in many communities,” said Hunter A. Applewhite, president of the Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation. “These grants are designed to support organizations that provide greater stability and a better life for people in need.”

Last year’s Critical Community Needs grants helped 160 nonprofits provide an array of essential services. For instance, ForKids Inc. was awarded $25,000 for its after-school program that helps families struggling with homelessness. Watch a video to see how ForKids helps young people succeed in school and life.

For this year’s grants, eligible organizations in targeted areas of Connecticut, Maryland, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia, Wyoming and other areas within Dominion Energy’s footprint are encouraged to apply. On-line applications will be accepted until Oct. 5, 2018.

Priority will be given to organizations that:

  • demonstrate the ability to serve communities through partnerships, and
  • have a proven track record of meeting basic human needs and preventing future needs.
