Background Information

On December 1, 2023, the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management (FECM) announced up to $40 million in funding for projects that will help advance commercial-scale carbon capture, transport, and storage across the United States to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from industrial operations and power plants, as well as from legacy emissions in the atmosphere. Specifically, the funding will provide technical, informational, and educational assistance to stakeholders involved in DOE and private sector-based carbon transport and storage projects located throughout the country, as well as to communities impacted by these projects. These efforts support the Biden-Harris Administration's commitment to ensuring that all carbon management projects continue to be designed, built, and operated safely and responsibly, and in a way that reflects the best science and commercial practice and responds to the needs and inputs of local communities. 

The projects will provide a valuable public information resource for developers of carbon storage sites, affected communities, and other interested parties. The selected projects will perform technical assistance designed to accomplish the following:

  • Reduction of project costs and project risks
  • Reduction of monitoring costs and/or improvements in monitoring effectiveness
  • Refinement of effective strategies for engaging with communities
  • Provision of data to support permitting, policy development, and rulemaking

The deadline to submit applications for this funding opportunity has closed.
