Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant NOFO closes April 30, 2024

The Department of Energy’s Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant Program supports clean energy projects and strategies in local communities.

This program provides funding for projects that enhance energy efficiency, promote renewable energy installation and contribute to community-led solar campaigns.

The current Notice of Opportunity (NOFO) is for $430 million, with no cap on the number of projects to be supported. Eligible activities under this grant range from developing energy efficiency and conservation strategies to implementing measures that increase community preparedness and resilience to energy-related risks.

States and local governments can apply by the closing date of April 30, 2024. Tribal governments have until May 31, 2025, to apply.

The Department of Energy has already committed $74 million in formula funding to 67 communities through the program, including $4.8 million to the state of Texas for sub-granting programs and $457,580 to Montgomery County, Texas, for upgrading lighting fixtures.
