Member to Member, Inc.
Member to Member, Inc. provides Northwestern REC member a hand up, not a hand out. Co-op members that are going through a difficult time that have either exhausted all other options to help cover their basic needs household costs or make too much to qualify for federal or state programs (working poor) can apply for M2M funding. No more than $300 per year can be awarded to a member who qualifies. After receiving a referral from Northwestern REC, members can apply for M2M at various agencies.
Programs and Services
After all federal and state assistance has been applied for and utilized, Co-op members can utilize M2M funds for up to $300 (unless special grant funding is available) to help cover the cost of their home electric needs. Other programs include energy audits/education to help reduce electric usage, safety hazard repairs to those that qualify and at times, holiday meals.
