Summary:

The purpose of this amendment is to:

  • Clarify the relative importance of the factors to be considered in determining whether an applicant's request for reduced cost share will be granted. Under Part III Section C (Cost Share Reduction Request) add: "In evaluating an applicant's cost share reduction justification, the applicant's financial need is significantly more important than the project's economic or environmental benefits. If the applicant fails to demonstrate financial need, the other factors will not be considered, and the cost share request will be denied."

All other parts of the Funding Opportunity Announcement remain unchanged.

All edits are highlighted in yellow to clearly call attention to the revisions that have been made in Amendments 001, 002 and 003.

DOE is soliciting applications from Indian Tribes, Tribal Energy Resource Development Organizations and Tribal Consortia to install community-scale or facility-scale clean energy systems on Indian lands to provide electricity and or heating and cooling for local use in tribal buildings. For purposes of this announcement, clean energy systems include renewable energy systems and combined heat and power systems. Projects selected under this Funding Opportunity Announcement are intended to reduce energy costs and increase energy security for Indian Tribes and tribal members.
