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 advance clean energy program innovation. EFG seeks to enhance energy affordability and access for communities, ensuring the broad benefits of a clean energy economy—including heath, economic development and jobs and emissions reductions—flow to disadvantaged communities.
EFG will provide support for at least 50 multijurisdictional teams (ideally 3-4 or more state, local, and tribal government partners). Teams will further partner with community benefit organizations to turn innovative (novel or early action) ideas into solutions that address barriers to clean energy deployment. EFG solutions will provide measurable benefits to communities and support Justice 40, which directs 40% of the overall benefits of certain federal investments to flow to disadvantaged communities.
EFG Ideas will be led by communities and foster integrated clean energy solutions in and across the power, transportation, and building 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 of innovative clean energy strategies nationwide.
To support program success by the November 10, 5 p.m. ET deadline, two webinars were hosted in July and August.
