The Biden-Harris Administration is committed to working closely with Tribal Nations and Native communities to apply for and deploy transformative federal funding opportunities to build bright clean energy futures and, in turn, foster more economic prosperity. This Department of Energy (DOE) resources guide is just one way the Administration is working closely with Tribal governments and nongovernmental partners to navigate, access, and utilize funding opportunities.

The Biden-Harris Administration provided once-in-a-generation investments supporting businesses and local leadership in the just transition to clean energy economies. These historic levels of funding are available through programs specific for Tribal communities and Native people under President Biden’s “Investing In America” Agenda, including: $13 billion in the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) and $700 million in the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA).

Beyond historic guaranteed investment into Native communities, Tribes and Tribal entities also are eligible to apply for billions of dollars in competitive and other clean energy funding under the Biden-Harris Administration.
