The State, Local and Tribal Technical Assistance Gateway provides an access point to DOE’s technical assistance and cooperative activities with state, local and tribal officials. Through its program and staff offices, DOE has engaged extensively with various levels of state, local and tribal governments, providing technical assistance on a range of energy issues. Our existing technical assistance and other activities, as well as relevant information offered by other federal agencies, are provided below by program or topic.

If you’re a state, local or tribal official, or a representative from an organization of such officials, with a specific question or need for assistance, email us and we’ll work collaboratively across the DOE to address your inquiry.  Responses could include access to DOE and national laboratory experts; ongoing cooperative activities with national state, local, regional and tribal associations and external subject matter experts; and existing and new materials including guidebooks, toolkits, webinars and data. Any technical assistance provided will depend on the inquiry and the availability of DOE resources.
