Open Solicitations:

Research and Education:

The Equity Leads will partner with local educational agencies (LEAs) to identify barriers to opportunities implementations and services to meet the identified needs of all pupils, including by addressing disparities in opportunities and academic outcomes.



Transportation:

California's Local HSIP focuses on infrastructure projects with nationally recognized crash reduction factors (CRFs). Local HSIP projects must be identified on the basis of crash experience, crash potential, crash rate, or other data-supported means.

The ACT School Bus Fleet Deployment Program funding is intended to amplify federal funding such as the EPA Clean School Bus Program, support electrification of school buses serving high-needs and priority districts, and to enable successful electric school bus deployment projects that demonstrate major steps toward full-fleet electrification.

Through the development and promotion of Marine Highway Transportation, the USMHP assists in funding eligible Projects to relieve landside congestion, reduce air emissions, and generate other public benefits by increasing the efficiency of the surface transportation system.

The Communities Taking Charge Accelerator FOA will seek to advance the mission and vision of the Joint Office by addressing discrete challenges to making it possible for everyone to ride and drive electric.



Community Development:

The EPA, together with states, Tribes, and its many partners, protects public health by protecting current and future drinking water sources and ensuring the availability of high-quality drinking water. Two programs within the EPA that protect drinking water sources are the Underground Injection Control and Source Water Protection programs.

The primary objective of the Indian Community Development Block Grant (ICDBG) program is the development of viable Indian and Alaska Native communities, including the creation of decent housing, suitable living environments, and economic opportunities primarily for persons of low-and moderate-incomes.

The purpose of the SNAP Fraud Framework Implementation Grant Program is to support State agency efforts to improve and expand recipient fraud prevention, detection, and investigation efforts using the procedures, ideas and practices outlined in the SNAP Fraud Framework.



Energy and Environment:

The Commercial and Industrial (C&I) Carbon Challenge program provides grant funding for single projects or project portfolios that reduce carbon emissions for large commercial and industrial customers or emission reduction solutions providers serving commercial and industrial customers.

The Equity, Engagement, and Education (EEE) Grant Account Cycle 2 will award grants for the purposes of building CBO, Tribal, and community capacity to understand and engage with CPUC decision-making processes.  This will enable CBOs and Tribes to have more influence over clean energy programs and support making these programs more accessible to their served communities.

The purpose of this grant funding opportunity (Solicitation) is to award three regional administrators (Recipients) with funding to implement the Equitable Building Decarbonization (EBD) Direct Install Program.



Request(s) for Information:

The goal of the Blue-Sky Training Program (BSTP) is to educate and train first responders, law enforcement agencies, local communities, utilities, authorities having jurisdictions (AHJs), and others on how to respond to unanticipated Energy Storage Systems (ESS) failures including those caused by cyber threats, physical threats, and other unanticipated operational failures.

Through the Better Grants Better Service initiative, USDA Rural Development is gathering and analyzing input from customers, agency staff and other stakeholders to streamline its more than 30 grant programs into a superior customer experience. These programs provide people in rural and Tribal communities access to better housing, infrastructure and business opportunities.



Forecasted Opportunities:

In the anticipated FOA, partnerships between storage technology providers, beneficiary organizations, and resiliency analytics partners will be required. If this planned FOA is released, resulting awards will be made for projects that align with these technology considerations: 1) Systems must be a bi-directional electricity-in electricity out system with quality performance metrics justified by the applicant based on their intended storage application, and 2) Demonstration must have the capability to discharge at least 100 kW of electricity for at least 10 hours at the maximum rated power.



General Updates:

EPA’s 2024-2025 SBIR Phase I solicitation is anticipated to open in June 2024. The solicitation purpose is to support eligible small businesses in the development and commercialization of innovative environmental technologies. Join for an informational webinar on EPA’s 2024-2025 Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I solicitation.
