EnviroFest 2020 Postponed

We understand that this is a very challenging time for everyone. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the request for EnviroFest 2020 proposals has been postponed until further notice. We will provide an update when available.

 

A key focus of Newfoundland Power’s investment in our communities centres on minimizing our environmental footprint. We are committed to enhancing green spaces in communities and creating awareness about the importance of preserving our environment for future generations. Our employee-driven Environmental Commitment Program (ECP) started in 1997 and since then we have partnered with more than 300 community groups, completed 105 environmental projects and inspired thousands of participants each year to take better care of our environment.

 

EnviroFest is the cornerstone of our ECP. This annual celebration of the environment provides funding and hands-on support for initiatives that encourage positive environmental action throughout our province.  EnviroFest events are held annually, primarily during Environment Week.

 

In 2020, we are once again inviting community-minded groups and organizations to submit proposals for support of their efforts to develop or enhance environmentally-friendly projects. Projects must demonstrate a positive impact on our environment that benefits the entire community. Examples of eligible projects include, but are not limited to, improving park areas, enhancing trail systems, starting a recycling program, adding or refurbishing green spaces, etc.

 

Proposals for EnviroFest 2020 must be submitted by 4:00 p.m., Friday, April 17, 2020. Successful proposals will be announced on Wednesday, April 22, 2020. A minimum of five grants of up to $5,000 each will be awarded.

    a. a detailed description of the project; 
    b. the total estimated cost of the project;
    c. other partners providing additional project funding;
    d. how the EnviroFest grant will be used;
    e. opportunities for our employees to provide hands-on support;
