Weatherization Assistance Program Announces Request for Information on Proposed Sustainable Energy Resources for Consumers Grants
March 09, 2010
The U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Weatherization and Intergovernmental Program today announced a Request for Information (RFI) regarding the Department’s proposed Sustainable Energy Resources for Consumers (SERC) Grants for up to $109 million.
Under the Recovery Act, states and local service providers are accelerating the pace of weatherization to create jobs and increase the number of families who can benefit from the energy and cost savings available through the Weatherization Assistance Program. The Weatherization Assistance Program works in partnership with states and more than 900 local service providers to weatherize homes of eligible low-income families.
The purpose of the proposed SERC grants are to speed delivery of weatherization assistance services, promote increased leveraging of federal funding with other funding sources, and identify and develop sustainable energy funding models that are not currently deployed by the Weatherization Assistance Program network.
The Department seeks comments from potential applicants, which include state weatherization agencies and local services providers, and also from other stakeholders.
