Heat Smart Seeking Tribal Partnerships

Economic development is a top concern for every sector of the country, and the Native American community is no different. Heat Smart can help tribes fight poverty and help members get ahead. In fact, we’ve already helped thousands of families in Alaskan tribes. Working with the Tlingit-Haida Regional Housing Authority and the Central Council Tlingit-Haida Regional Indian Tribes in 2005, we shipped 5000 wool blankets to help keep low-income tribal members in remote locations warm through tough winters.

We want to help even more. That’s why we’re participating in the Reservation Economic Summit (RES) hosted by the National Center for American Indian Enterprise Development in March. To be held in Las Vegas, the conference offers unparalleled access to respected tribal leaders, members of congress, federal agency representatives, state and local elected officials and top CEOs on both a regional and national platform.

With thousands of participants, it’s an ideal place to help make connections between tribes, government programs, utilities, community action agencies, and Heat Smart. With all of us working together, we can make a real difference in the lives of low-income families.

Are you going to RES? Stop by our booth and introduce yourself! We’d love to share ideas with you and create some new partnerships that will blanket the country in energy savings. Now that’s an idea everyone can warm up to!
