Formula Funding

Formula funding is available to energy communities through ongoing appropriations, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) and the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA). Formula funding is when the federal government allocates funds to a state agency or tribal entity which then has authority to re-allocate or award them to eligible groups and uses. The below database features billions of dollars in existing formula funding sources.

You can find the full list of all federal funding relevant to energy communities in our centralized clearinghouse. Energy communities interested in formula funding can also reach out to their state or Tribal government officials to learn more.

Funding opportunities are reviewed and updated weekly using publicly available information.

Funding amounts and open/close dates listed in funding opportunity profiles are subject to change by the agencies.

The BIL and IRA provisions currently listed are intended to describe the direction and amount of future funding opportunities relevant to energy communities. One BIL or IRA provision can result in multiple BIL or IRA funding opportunities. To avoid double counting of BIL or IRA funding, when a BIL or IRA funding opportunity is posted, the value of the associated BIL or IRA provision is reduced by the amount of the newly released funding opportunity.
