2004 Projects Funding History

In fiscal year (FY) 2003, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) solicited applications for financial assistance from federally recognized tribes or Alaskan Native corporations to conduct feasibility studies for renewable energy installations on tribal lands.

Of the 11 feasibility study applications selected for funding under the FY 2003 solicitation, four tribal projects were awarded in 2003, and seven projects were awarded using FY 2004 funds.

These feasibility studies were intended to demonstrate the potential sustainability of renewable energy development on tribal lands, including the potential economic and environmental benefits to the tribe.

The DOE press release provides a brief summary of the awards.
