Office of Manufacturing and Energy Supply Chains (MESC)

Funded by:

U.S. Department of Energy


The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), in collaboration with its Partnership Intermediary, ENERGYWERX, has re-opened applications for small and medium-sized manufacturing firms (SMMs) to receive grants of up to $300,000, at 50% cost share, to implement recommendations made in Industrial Assessment Centers (IAC) assessments and/or DOE Combined Heat and Power Technical Assistance Partnership (CHP TAP) assessments – including what are now called “Onsite Energy TAP” assessments – and, once qualified, other assessments submitted previously for qualification as “IAC-equivalent.”


The DOE Industrial Assessment Centers (IAC) Implementation Grant Program (Implementation Grant Program) provides grants funded by section 40521 of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, 42 USC 17116, to small and medium-sized manufacturers (SMMs) to implement recommendations made in IAC and Combined Heat and Power Technical Assistance Partnership (CHP TAP) assessments since 2018, and in recommendations made in equivalent assessments since 2021. These grants will bolster the American manufacturing base by supporting projects to improve energy and material efficiency, to increase productivity, and to reduce emissions at SMMs. DOE further intends that these grants will advance the objectives of the Justice40 initiative by improving business performance, increasing energy affordability, and creating pathways to high-quality jobs in disadvantaged communities by driving federal investment into these communities and, where possible, utilizing registered apprenticeship programs and IAC Program participants in implementation efforts.

  • Workstream 1: Implementation Grants – This workstream involves collecting grant applications from SMMs to implement recommendations made in IAC, CHP TAP, or qualified equivalent assessments that meet the eligibility and prioritization criteria described below. Note: Eligible potential applicants must submit one (1) form FOR EACH FACILITY in which grant support is requested.
  • Workstream 2: Third-Party Assessor Qualification – This workstream involves collecting applications from entities interested in having their assessments qualify as “equivalent to IAC assessments” in accordance with 42 USC§17116(a)(2)(C), so that their eligible clients can apply for implementation grants.

Effective immediately, this grant program will operate on a rolling basis: applications may be submitted at any time throughout the year as funds are available and will be reviewed quarterly. The next review will occur for applications submitted by July 1, 2024 3:00 pm ET.

The subsequent review dates are September 30 and December 31, 2024. Up to $80 million in total funding is currently available, and DOE expects to make more available through FY2026. Note that elements of the solicitation (e.g., eligibility, criteria, deadlines) are subject to change with each quarterly review period.
