Technical Assistance for Energy Communities Webinar Series – Webinar #2

January 17, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST

Many energy communities need help identifying, applying, and managing financial assistance that could diversify and revitalize their economies. These communities often also struggle to coordinate with other organizations in their region to pursue larger opportunities that typically involve collaborative applications.

In these instances, technical assistance (TA) can begin to fill the gaps and address challenges facing energy communities. TA is the process of providing targeted support usually in the form of consulting and advice rather than direct financial awards to a community or organization with a development need.

The Interagency Working Group on Coal and Power Plant Communities and Economic Revitalization (Energy Communities IWG) is hosting a three-part webinar series highlighting federal and non-federal technical assistance opportunities to benefit energy communities.

Webinar #1: 1:00-2:00 pm on Tuesday, January 10, 2023

The first webinar focused on the federal READY Appalachia and Rural Partners Network technical assistance programs. The video and materials from Webinar #1 are available here

Webinar #2: 1:00-2:00 pm on Tuesday, January 17, 2023

The second webinar will focus on the thriving communities and environmental justice programs led by the U.S. Department of Transportation and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Webinar #3: 1:00-2:00 pm on Tuesday, January 24, 2023

The third webinar will highlight non-federal technical assistance programs.
