DOE releases energy block grant guidance.

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has released guidance and funding allocations for the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant (EECBG), which will provide grants to cities, counties and states for innovative practices designed to achieve greater energy efficiency and lower energy usage.

The Recovery Act provided $3.2 billion for the EECBG program, most of which (nearly $2.7 billion) will be distributed through formula grants. The balance includes approximately $455 million for competitive grants, which will be awarded through a separate funding opportunity

General program information and formula grant allocations can be found on the U.S. DOE website,

The application process for formula grants is open and cities can apply through June 25. Applications must be completed online through FedConnect.
