Projects Funding History
The U.S. Department of Energy funds a wide variety of renewable energy and energy efficiency projects in an effort to assist tribes in realizing their energy visions. Over the past decade, the Tribal Energy Program awarded 70% of its total available discretionary funds directly to tribes to pursue their projects. From 2002 to 2012, the program awarded a total of $41.8 million to fund 175 tribal energy projects. During that same period, tribes contributed a total of $36 million in cost sharing to advance their energy projects. (Note: Per statute only development and deployment type awards have required cost share (50% or 100% match). Read the funding histories for Fiscal Years 1994–2012.
