Community Support during the COVID-19 crisis

small business 250x250-01

Thank you!

Small businesses are the backbone of all communities, and at NorthWestern Energy, we believe the economic stability they provide to all of us is valuable to protect.  Helping small businesses survive this pandemic is extremely important and together we can all help. 

As a major employer in Montana, South Dakota and Nebraska, we understand our responsibility to assist customers through difficult times. During the COVID-19 pandemic, NorthWestern Energy has provided more than $160,000 in the form of bill credits to small businesses through a grant program. There were more requests than we could fund, and all program dollars have been allocated. While the program is no longer available, other resources at the local, state, and national level remain available, such as the Payroll Protection Program.  For a more detailed list of resources, click here

Community Works

NorthWestern Energy is a community within many communities. We are close to 1,600 individuals working collectively to build stronger communities in Montana, Nebraska and South Dakota through the production, generation and delivery of electricity and natural gas.

Our goal is to be a leading corporate citizen in each of the diverse communities we serve. In 2019, our Community Works Fund contributed more than $2.1 million in economic development, charitable donations and community sponsorships. We are invested fully in the community spirit that connects us in common purpose.
