The IEEE Humanitarian Activities Committee has awarded grants totaling $95,000 to two non-profit organizations based in the Denver Section.

- Colorado Haiti Project for Investing in Rural Haiti – Solar at St. Paul’s in Petit Trou de Nippes, #18-PC3-10
The IEEE Humanitarian Activities Committee (HAC) is tasked with supporting the IEEE Board-endorsed vision of IEEE volunteers around the world carrying out and/or supporting impactful Humanitarian Activities at the local level – i.e. “feet on the ground.”
HAC has a stringent evaluation process for project proposals and looks for submissions that address one or more UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in a major, impactful way, demonstrate consultation with and a clear understanding of the needs of target communities, and demonstrate a needs-driven approach to strengthening local capacity through technology deployment.
