​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The Bi-Partisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) funded for only the second time in history, the Energy Efficiency Conservation Block Grant (EECBG) Program. Kentucky's allocation under the EECBG program is $2,237,940. 

The purpose of the EECBG Program is to assist eligible state, local, and tribal governments in implementing strategies to:

  • ​Reduce fossil fuel emissions in a manner that is environmentally sustainable and, to the maximum extent practicable, maximizes benefits for local and regional communities;

  • Reduce the total energy use of the eligible entities;

  • Improve energy efficiency in the transportation sector, the building sector, and other appropriate sectors;

  • Build a clean and equitable energy economy that prioritizes disadvantaged communities and promotes equity and inclusion in workforce opportunities and deployment activities, consistent with the Justice40 Initiative.

The Kentucky Energy and Environment Cabinet (EEC), Office of Energy Policy (OEP) is seeking applications for EECBG projects. OEP anticipates providing the majority of the received funding for grant awards between $500,000 - $1,000,000 each. Eligible applicants for this program include local governments who did NOT receive a direct allocation under the federal Energy Efficiency Conservation Block Grant from U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).

The Cabinet seeks applications for a variety of program activities that provide direct energy savings for local governments rather than planning activities. Details about the eligible activities under this funding will be available in the application instructions and discussed during the EECBG application informational webinar.

The application will open on May 1st, 2024 and all applications must be submitted electronically and received by 4:00 p.m. Eastern daylight time May 31, 2024. All application materials are on this page under application materials.
