NEEP: Bipartisan Infrastructure Law Opportunities for Community Building Energy Efficiency

Download

Overview

This resource outlines building energy efficiency and electrification actions that NEEP recommends communities in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic pursue, along with the funding opportunities that NEEP believes could be used to support them. 

Community action for building energy efficiency and emissions reductions is critical for achieving local and state goals, and many communities in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic are leading the way. With new funding from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL), even more will be possible. Local governments are eligible to apply for and receive a large part of the available money, so planning for these applications is key. Roughly 60 percent of BIL funding will be allocated through formulas, and about 40 percent will be made available through competitive grants, loans, and federal programs.

The White House sent a letter to all of the U.S. Governors asking them to appoint a state-wide Infrastructure Implementation Coordinator to work with the state budget team and across departments. The federal government’s Infrastructure Implementation Coordinator also outlined steps for local governments to prepare for competitive funding.
