Illinois Basin Rapid Response Team (RRT) Opt-In Portal

Illinois Basin Rapid Response Team (RRT) Opt-In Portal


The Energy Communities Interagency Working Group (IWG) has launched a Rapid Response Team (RRT) in the Illinois Basin, bringing together 11 federal agencies to partner with local officials and community leaders in Illinois, Indiana, and Kentucky to support the region’s transition to a clean energy economy. The new RRT will align federal resources, including regional staff on the ground in the Illinois Basin area, toward key communities experiencing recent or imminent economic downturns from coal mine and power plant closures. Federal agencies serving on the RRT will partner with workers, communities, and public officials to support them with mapping their current assets and opportunities. These agencies will help Illinois Basin stakeholders to navigate and access federal funding and technical assistance as well as leverage significant new funding opportunities through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and the Inflation Reduction Act.

Stakeholders interested in partnering with and providing input to the Illinois Basin RRT should register below to join the effort.
