Local governments from communities that missed out on the formula EECBG funding provided directly by the U.S. Department of Energy now have a chance to apply for funding between $100,000 and $500,000. These funds are designated for projects that not only promote energy savings but also aim to foster significant reductions in emissions.

Emily Wilbur, the director of the Missouri Department of Natural Resources’ Division of Energy, emphasized the program’s broader goal: “Programs like the EECBG contribute to Missouri’s energy security,” she stated. “We are excited to help more Missouri communities make investments that increase their energy efficiency and reduce consumption.”

The program offers a fantastic opportunity for communities to make strides towards becoming more energy-efficient and environmentally sustainable. Interested applicants can find more details, including the required application forms, on the official website at dnr.mo.gov/energy/grants-loans/efficiency-conservation-block-grant.
