The Federal Energy Management Program is hosting an informational webinar about a new funding opportunity entitled, "Assisting Federal Facilities with Energy Conservation Technologies (AFFECT)."

Attendance is not mandatory and will not positively or negatively impact the overall review of any applicant submissions.

About the Funding Opportunity

The Biden-Harris Administration, through the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), announced $250 million in funding from President Biden's Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to help federal agencies implement net-zero building projects and set an example in sustainability as the nation works to transition to clean energy and combat climate change.

The AFFECT program is managed by DOE's Federal Energy Management Program and provides funding to federal agencies to help meet energy- and water-related goals by identifying affordable solutions, facilitating public-private partnerships, and leveraging best practices to promote energy leadership. 

The AFFECT opportunity seeks applications from federal agencies that would use the funding to make energy and water efficiency upgrades to new and existing federal buildings and help them achieve net-zero through initiatives like efficiency and conservation improvements, electrification, on-site clean energy generation, and sustainable design.
