Gift of Warmth Energy Assistance Program

As we face the coldest part of the year, American Indian Women of Proud Nations is excited to announce that we have developed an energy assistance program, The Gift of Warmth, to support recognized tribes in North Carolina. Our goal is to provide relief to tribal citizens facing disconnection from their energy company due to financial hardship. This opportunity is open to citizens of all eight Tribal Nations in North Carolina; however, priority will be given tribal citizens without energy assistance programs and citizens ineligible to receive assistance directly through their tribe.

Applications will be received beginning February 1, 2021 and accepted until funds are depleted. Submit completed the application with current energy bill to  If you do not have access to email have your tribal leader, or someone, submit it for you.
