Environmental Justice Collaborative Problem-Solving (Ejcps) Cooperative Agreement Program. April 14, 2023.
EPA is issuing this solicitation to request applications for projects supporting community-based nonprofit organizations (CBOs) in their efforts to collaborate and partner with other stakeholders (e.g., local businesses and industry, local government, medical service providers, academia, etc.) to develop solutions that will significantly address environmental and/or public health issue(s) in communities disproportionately burdened by environmental harms and risks. These projects will help transform disadvantaged and underserved communities into healthy, thriving communities capable of addressing the environmental and public health challenges they have historically faced, as well as current and future challenges. https://www.grants.gov/web/grants/view-opportunity.html?oppId=345310
Environmental Justice Government-to-Government Program (EJG2G). April 14, 2023.
EPA is issuing this solicitation requesting applications for projects that support and/or create model state, tribal, local, and territorial government activities that lead to measurable environmental or public health results in communities disproportionately burdened by environmental harms and risks. These projects will help transform disadvantaged and underserved communities into healthy, thriving communities capable of addressing the environmental and public health challenges they have historically faced, as well as current and future challenges.
Waste-to-Energy Technical Assistance for Local Governments. April 14, 2023.
NREL provides U.S. local governments with technical assistance to advance waste-to-energy (WTE) technologies on behalf of the U.S. Department of Energy Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO). The technical assistance addresses knowledge gaps, specific challenges, decision-making considerations, planning, and project implementation strategies related to WTE. The WTE resources considered include organic waste such as food waste, wastewater sludge, animal manure, and fats, oils, and greases. https://www.nrel.gov/bioenergy/waste-to-energy-technical-assistance.html
The City of Albuquerque, Department of Family and Community Services April 19, 2023 at 4:00 p.m.
This is an RFP for Non-Profit or Governmental Agencies for Social Services and Behavioral Health Services for Fiscal Year 2024. This Request for Proposals is funded by the City of Albuquerque and Bernalillo County and is focused on providing funds for implementation of a Forensic Assertive Community Treatment (FACT) team for residents of Bernalillo County. FACT is a service delivery model intended for individuals with serious mental illness (SMI) who are involved with the criminal justice system. These individuals may have co-occurring substance use and physical health disorders. This Request for Proposals will be available beginning Sunday, March 19, 2023 at 12:00 a.m. through Wednesday, April 19, 2023 at 4:00 p.m. at cabq.bonfirehub.com. The Administrative Requirements for Contracts Awarded Under the City of Albuquerque, and Albuquerque Minimum Standards for Substance Abuse Treatment and Prevention Services can be accessed on the Department’s website.
Onsite Energy Technical Assistance Partnerships. April 21, 2023.
The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Industrial Efficiency and Decarbonization Office (IEDO) announced a $23 million funding opportunity that will establish a regional network of Technical Assistance Partnerships (TAPs) to help industrial facilities and other large energy users increase the adoption of onsite energy technologies. Integrating clean energy technologies directly in buildings and plants will play a significant role in achieving the nation’s climate goals and reaching a net-zero economy by 2050. The Onsite Energy TAPs will accelerate the integration and deployment of clean energy technologies to drive U.S. industrial decarbonization, productivity, and competitiveness. https://www.energy.gov/eere/amo/onsite-energy-technical-assistance-partnerships
Clean Energy to Communities Program: In-Depth Partnerships. May 17, 2023.
Through the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Clean Energy to Communities (C2C) program, NREL offers in-depth technical partnerships that support communities in developing secure, reliable, resilient, and affordable clean energy systems. In-depth technical partnerships help communities develop a realistic, validated plan to put clean energy ambitions into action and address key energy challenges. These partnerships offer teams—composed of local government, community-based organizations, and electric utilities and other key organizations that can represent the community—the chance to work alongside national laboratory staff as they apply robust modeling and analysis tools and conduct hardware-in-the-loop testing of solutions adapted to the community’s unique conditions and contexts. This multiyear partnership will allow local decision makers to evaluate and test potential scenarios and strategies in their energy transition before full technology deployment, lowering risks to implementation. https://www.nrel.gov/state-local-tribal/c2c-in-depth-partnerships.html
Energy Improvements in Rural or Remote Areas. June 28, 2023
The Energy Improvements in Rural or Remote Areas (ERA) program seeks to improve the resilience, reliability, and affordability of energy systems in communities across the country with 10,000 or fewer people. The ERA program will leverage DOE’s expertise and experience in resilient energy solutions to modernize electric generation facilities, address disproportionately high electricity costs, and support new economic opportunities in rural and remote communities. https://www.energy.gov/oced/energy-improvements-rural-or-remote-areas-0
