New Energy Funds for Congregations
March 14 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Two new federal laws, the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (a.k.a. the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law) and the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), offer funding opportunities for energy projects at nonprofit organizations, including houses of worship! Funds can cover projects ranging from small retrofits (e.g., replacing lighting systems, adding insulation) to large upgrades (e.g., replacing HVAC systems, adding solar panels).
The new Energy Efficiency Pilot Program was created to set aside $50 million in grant money exclusively for nonprofits. Applications for these grants will demonstrate to Congress the need for more exclusive energy efficient funds for nonprofit organizations and will create more jobs in small towns and low-income communities. This is a win-win for everyone.
FCGG is honored to have speaker Dan Bresette, president of the Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI). Created by Congress and based in Washington D.C., EESI is as an independent, bi-partisan, 501 non-profit organization that seeks to be a catalyst moving society away from environmentally damaging fossil fuels and toward a clean energy future.
