News from KY Department of Local Government
FRANKFORT, KY (Wed 7 Dec 2016) - Department for Local Government (DLG) Commissioner Sandra K. Dunahoo today announced that applications are being accepted for the Energy Efficiency and Conservation for Local Governments (EEC) Program. This program is part of an ongoing effort by DLG, in cooperation with the Kentucky Energy and Environment Cabinet, to help city and county governments reduce their energy consumption, as well as benefit taxpayers by lowering utility costs for local governments.
While only county and city governments are eligible to apply for EEC funding, a local government may apply on behalf of a non-profit agency or a public or quasi-public entity within their jurisdiction.
Eligible project activities are those that are likely to result in maximum energy efficiency improvements, fossil-fuel emission reductions, economic benefits and total energy use reduction. Projects that are part of a comprehensive plan for energy reduction will receive preference. Funds may be used to "buy down" an energy savings performance contract. An administrative fee not to exceed five percent of the award total may be included to cover the cost of a third-party administrator.
The program provides for a minimum grant of $10,000 to a maximum grant of $100,000. Multi-jurisdictional projects may request an amount not to exceed the maximum grant multiplied by the number of jurisdictions involved in the project.
Applications will be accepted December 7, 2016 through January 31, 2017. EEC applications and related materials are available at kydlgweb.ky.gov/StateGrants/specProg.cfm.
Applicants that previously applied for EEC Program funds that were not selected may update the previous application or request that the application be reconsidered as is.
Any questions should be directed to Amy Barnes at 502-573-2382, extension 219 or email@example.com, or Melanie Lane at extension 265 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
