The WV builders contracted with a person to help attain Grants from several foundations, the fee for the services provided is near $6000.00. This was provided for the following:
$4000. for services to write the initial letter
$2000 for a trip to meet with two foundations.
Because we have never worked in the Grant area, this person wants an additional $10,000.00 to continue working
We at the WV Homebuilders are a small group of Mom & Pop builders that want to help educate fellow West Virginian's as to how to save energy. WV was 49th on the ACEEE rating scale and has just moved to 46th on the scale.
We are looking for around 300K to 500K to create and provide a well rounded program. The WV Division of Energy is onboard with this program, but we at West Virginia Home Builders are a small organization and we need help.
