Hydro Ottawa's Brighter Tomorrows Fund
Hydro Ottawa's Brighter Tomorrows Fund Supports Registered Charities working in the homelessness, shelter and warmth sector
Hydro Ottawa’s Brighter Tomorrows Community Investment Program aims to support the communities in which Hydro Ottawa operates in a targeted and meaningful manner.
Hydro Ottawa has teamed up with United Way again this year to manage and support an innovative community investment fund called Hydro Ottawa's Brighter Tomorrows Fund. This fund enables frontline charities that serve people who are homeless, or at risk of being homeless, to invest in energy-efficient technologies or products. Specifically, the fund supports small-scale capital projects that improve the energy efficiency of an organization's facilities, helping to reduce energy costs and creating savings that organizations can use for their programs. Hydro Ottawa matches the funds raised by its employees from its annual United Way workplace campaign to provide the investment dollars available under this Fund.
We are looking to the community we serve to help identify small capital projects — those with the greatest potential for making housing and shelter facilities energy-efficient. Funding proposals are now being solicited and will be reviewed by a committee made up of representatives from Hydro Ottawa, United Way Ottawa and the local community.
