Communities LEAP Informational Webinar
September 28 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm EDT
On September 15, Secretary Granholm introduced Communities LEAP (Local Energy Action Program) – a new pilot initiative that will help environmental justice and fossil fuel communities develop action plans to transition to a clean energy future. This program will award up to $16 million in technical assistance to help 24–36 communities across the country realize different clean energy-oriented economic development pathways. Plans will emphasize energy jobs and workforce skills and promote minority-owned and small- to mid-size businesses wherever possible.
Join DOE staff for an overview of the Communities LEAP competitive technical assistance opportunity announcement including eligibility, application requirements, application schedule and deadlines, and evaluation criteria. Communities LEAP is offered jointly by DOE’s Offices of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Electricity, Policy, Fossil Energy and Carbon Management, and Economic Impact and Diversity.
