Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant (EECBG) Program
Most MN Cities are eligible to receive funding from IIJA funding for the U.S. Department of Energy as part of the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant (EECBG) Program.
Applications for Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant (EECBG) funding are open and available now.
Good News! The deadline for eligible applicants to submit a required Pre-Award Information Sheet has been extended to July 31, 2023 with full applications due by January 31, 2024.
The Department of Energy (DOE) has put together templates and instructions for applications, well as offering streamlined reporting and management for smaller governments eligible for less than $250,000, by allowing those entities to apply for vouchers. The EECBG program also allows eligible entities to team up with peers to carry out larger projects across a wider area. Teams can submit a single joint application to DOE. You can find a list of other local governments in your area eligible for EECBG funding on the DOE Application Hub
