This project is being implemented under the umbrella of New Community Project, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
The Harrisonburg-based program of New Community Project is called Vine and Fig, and is located at 715 N. Main Street in Harrisonburg.
Give Solar is made possible through a grant from the Merck Foundation’s Neighbor of Choice Program. This is a one-year grant that carries with it the possibility of being renewed.
