Recovery Act Request for Information (RFI): Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant (EECBG) Program: Competitive Grants
Open Date: 09/14/2009
Close Date: 09/28/2009
Funding Organization: Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy
Funding Number: DE-FOA-0000148
This is a Request for Information (RFI) and not a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA); therefore, DOE is not accepting applications and is instead seeking feedback from stakeholders on a planned competitive FOA in support of The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act ("Recovery Act") of 2009, Public Law 111-5.
DOE anticipates that a total of $453.72 million will be available for competitive grants awarded through one (1) FOA with two (2) topic areas:
- The Retrofit Ramp-Up Program
- General Innovation Fund for Ineligible Entities
The purpose of this RFI is to solicit feedback on the proposed topic areas and evaluation criteria for the competitive awards for eligible entities, and for those that are not eligible for direct formula grants. This is a RFI and not a FOA; therefore, DOE is not accepting applications and is instead seeking information from states, cities, counties, U.S. territories, Indian tribes and other interested parties on the assistance under the planned FOA.
For more information, see the full solicitation.
Funding amounts and schedules are subject to change.
