The Energy Future Grants (EFG) provides $27 million in financial assistance and technical assistance to support local, state, and Tribal government-led partnership efforts that will help scale local strategies that increase resiliency and improve access to affordable clean energy. EFG seeks to ensure the broad benefits of a clean energy economy—including health, economic development and jobs, grid resilience and adaptability, and emissions reductions—flow to disadvantaged communities and support Justice 40, which directs 40% of the overall benefits of certain federal investments to flow to disadvantaged communities.

EFG projects will be led by communities and support innovative, deployment-based plans in the transportation, buildings, and/or power sectors. A successful project will have equitable program innovation, multi-jurisdictional partnerships, and scalable outcomes that can leverage DOE and other resources to speed and scale deployment strategies nationwide.
