Funding Opportunities

Here you'll find information on funding opportunities and grants from the Tribal Energy Program for renewable energy and energy efficiency projects on tribal lands. As an implementing arm of the program, the Golden Field Office solicits, awards, administers, and manages these financial assistance agreements.

Funding and grants through the Tribal Energy Program are awarded via a competitive process. Each funding opportunity announcement (FOA) will include instructions on how to apply, application content, and the criteria by which applications will be selected for funding.

For a general overview of the funding and grant process, see Federal Financial Assistance Opportunities at the Department of Energy.
