“Guide to Federal Financing for Energy Efficiency and Clean Energy Deployment” is a resource guide that lists the various federal financing programs for which energy efficiency and clean energy qualify -- meant to make it easier for state, local and tribal leaders, along with their partners in the private sector, to find capital for energy efficiency and clean energy projects.
This guide -- now in its second edition -- is a product of a cooperative effort among seven federal agencies, including the U.S. Departments of Agriculture, Energy, Housing and Urban Development, Transportation and Treasury, along with the Environmental Protection Agency and Small Business Administration. For every facility listed, the guide identifies a single point of contact who can answer your questions and provide additional support.
