Neighbors Helping Neighbors (NHN) Community Grants help Singing River Electric merge efforts with the hard work of those within our communities.
Through this program, two to three grants for up to $2,500 each will be awarded three times a year in January, May and September. SRE will fund a maximum of eight (8) grants in a calendar year. The grants are available to non-profit organizations helping communities within Singing River Electric’s service territory in education, civic, community development and economic development. Applications are due the second Friday of the month in which grants are being accepted. Click here to view application criteria.
Since the program’s inception in 2001, grant monies have been used to purchase playground equipment, car seats, computers, books to teach adults and children to read and to support local projects locally, among other causes. The idea of “neighbors helping neighbors” emerged after Hurricane Georges when Singing River Electric witnessed firsthand neighbors lending a hand to those in need.
