Energy Infrastructure Deployment on Tribal Lands- 2018

Department of Energy, Office of Indian Energy

Deadline Passed 4/19/2018. Deadline Unknown for 2019. Specifically, under this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), DOE’s Office of Indian Energy is soliciting applications from Indian Tribes, which include Alaska Native Regional Corporations and Village Corporations, and Tribal Energy Resource Development Organizations to: Install energy efficiency measures and/or energy generating system(s) for tribal building(s) (Topic Area 1); Deploy community-scale energy generating system(s) on tribal lands (Topic Area 2); and Install energy system(s) for autonomous operation (Topic Area 3). Applications may also be submitted on behalf of an Indian Tribe(s) by an authorized Tribal Organization or Inter-Tribal Organization, provided evidence of that authority is included as part of the application. The intended results of the 50% cost-shared projects selected under this FOA are to reduce or stabilize energy costs and increase energy security and resilience for Indian tribes and Alaska Native villages. DOE expects to make approximately $5.5 million to $11.5 million of federal funding available for new awards under this FOA, subject to the availability of appropriated funds. The actual level of funding, if any, depends on Congressional appropriations. DOE anticipates making approximately 6 to 15 awards under this FOA. The DOE Office of Indian Energy will conduct an informational webinar on February 27, 2018 (3:00 Eastern) to provide information on the Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) to potential applicants. In addition to describing the FOA in detail, information will be provided on who is eligible to apply, what an application needs to include, cost share and other requirements, how to ask questions, and how applications will be selected for funding. If you are unable to attend the webinar, it will be recorded and posted for later viewing. Register for the webinar at
