Community Heating Resource Program

Welcome to the Navajo Mine Community Heating Resource Program

Welcome to CHRP

The 2022-2023 CHRP Program is Open

In March, the coal yard is only open on Fridays and Saturdays.

Each year, NTEC provides Navajo and Hopi chapter members the opportunity to obtain free coal during the winter. Navajo Mine takes great pride in this long-standing tradition.

The Navajo Mine has been distributing free coal to the neighboring Navajo community since the 1980’s. In 2016, NTEC assumed management of the program and continued to provide free coal to the chapters surrounding the Navajo Mine.

The Community Heating Resource Program (CHRP) provides free coal from the Navajo Mine to all Navajo and Hopi chapters and their members. The program has been in place for three years, but with the closure of Kayenta Mine, NTEC realized the program needed to be dramatically expanded. To date, more than 3,000 families from 85 Navajo chapters and four Hopi villages have benefited from the program.
