On January 25, GDO hosted a webinar to learn about the Transmission Siting and Economic Development Grants program Request For Information.

As part of the Building a Better Grid Initiative, the Transmission Siting and Economic Development Grants program will support states and local communities in the siting and permitting of interstate and offshore electricity transmission lines. Through this RFI, GDO is requesting information from stakeholders regarding issues related to the provision of grants to facilitate the siting of interstate and offshore electricity transmission lines, including possible tools and resources that may reduce the time for siting authorities to reach decisions, and opportunities to increase community engagement and reduce conflicts that can stall siting processes.

This webinar provided additional details around the type of information DOE is requesting and how stakeholders can contribute.
