Federal Legislation: New Funding Opportunities

Good news! Recent  federal energy legislation offers exciting funding opportunities for building upgrades, infrastructure improvements, and workforce development. Much of the focus is on making buildings more energy efficient, investing in renewable energy and electric vehicles, and training people for green jobs. There is something for everyone: businesses, homeowners, federal buildings, non-profit and community organizations, institutions of higher education, state agencies, public schools, municipalities and more.

Below we describe some opportunities from the Federal Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act Opportunities and the Inflation Reduction Act.
