DOE Request for Information

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), released a Request for Information seeking public input on the structure of a $2.3 billion formula grant program to strengthen and modernize America’s power grid against wildfires, extreme weather, and other natural disasters that are exacerbated by the climate crisis. The new program will assist states and tribal nations with projects that create good-paying jobs to deliver clean, affordable, and reliable energy to everyone, everywhere, anytime. The Request for Information seeks feedback to inform DOE’s structuring of the formula grants, including the formula grant program Notice of Intent, draft application and award requirements, and draft award formula allocation. Comments must be received by June 27. A public webinar will be held on May 5, 2022, from 2:00-3:00 p.m. ET to provide additional information.
