Orange and Rockland Utilities, Inc. (O&R) is issuing a request for proposals (RFP) to provide an initial grant of up to $600,000 over the next three years to help local organizations combat the effects of extreme heat and other climate-related extreme weather events. 

Nonprofit organizations, educational institutions, and community partners are invited to apply for funding under this grant. The deadline for submitting proposals is May 3, 2024.

Today’s announcement is part of O&R’s commitment to help usher in the clean energy future equitably and efficiently with the goal of every customer sharing the benefits of a more sustainable grid.

O&R is seeking to fund proposals that will cultivate leaders, expand community-based knowledge, empower advocacy, and demonstrate activities that tangibly plan, prepare, and/or support community members for relevant climate events. 

Winning proposals will offer community-driven programs or initiatives that build and advance resiliency for their communities.
