Halifax Helps – Helping the communities we serve

Posted: May 16, 2023 at 4:40 pm

Halifax Helps was established in 2008 to provide financial assistance to areas served by Halifax EMC by funding projects that meet one of the following five criteria: education, economic development, energy efficiency, environment, or emergency response. Funds for the Halifax Helps grants are voluntarily generated through Operation RoundUp by “rounding up” members’ electric bills to the nearest dollar.
