The Hampton Roads H20 – Help to Others – Program was established in 1999 by the Hampton Roads Planning District Commission (HRPDC). The Commission is a regional organization that represents the area’s 16 local governments. Throughout the year, the HRPDC and Hampton Roads Sanitation District (HRSD) conduct fundraising to provide assistance through the program. A base amount of funds is then allocated to each locality and remaining funds are distributed based on number of water accounts.
