Coming Soon: DOE Powering Unelectrified Tribal Buildings.

Opportunity Title:

NOI Powering Unelectrified Tribal Buildings



Opportunity Number:

DE-FOA-0002770



Description:

Through this planned Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), the DOE Office of Indian Energy plans to solicit applications from Indian Tribes, which include Alaska Native Regional Corporations and Village Corporations, Intertribal Organizations, and Tribal Energy Development Organizations for one Area of Interest in the FOA: to deploy energy infrastructure or integrated energy system(s) to provide electricity to Tribal Buildings which otherwise would be unelectrified, where “unelectrified” means Tribal Buildings that are not connected to (1) the traditional centralized electric power grid, or not connected to (2) an integrated energy system(s) operating independent of the traditional centralized electric power grid.

For purposes of this planned FOA, a Tribal Building is a building or buildings where the eligible entity has the authority to augment or modify the building and where the building is either owned by the eligible entity or tribal members, or the eligible entity has a long‐term lease (as a minimum, for the useful life of the proposed project). Tribal Building(s) may include, but are not limited to, tribal member homes, schools, community buildings, clinics/hospitals, tribal government buildings, fire stations, police stations, radio stations, washaterias, utility facilities (such as water/waste water systems), tribal casinos, or tribal businesses.

The DOE Office of Indian Energy envisions awarding multiple financial assistance awards in the form of grants. The estimated period of performance for each award will be approximately from one (1) to three (3) years including a 12-month mandatory verification period. Under the planned FOA, the DOE Office of Indian Energy anticipates making awards that range from $250,000 to $4,000,000.
