Recipients of Grid Resilience Energy Grants Announced

Energy Department chooses nine states and three tribal nations for a third round of distributions.

The Department of Energy (DOE) distributed $207.6 million to nine states and three tribal nations recently as part of the third round of funding from the Grid Resilience State and Tribal Formula Grant programs. These grants are set to distribute $2.3 billion over the next five years to help every state, territory, and Tribal nation build up their electrical grids.

Many states will use this funding to improve the weatherization of their energy infrastructure, update any out-of-date technology, and incorporate clean energy solutions when possible.

“DOE is excited to announce a continued stream of funding aimed at strengthening America’s workforce and preparing the nation for a more resilient, clean energy future,” said Secretary Jennifer Granholm. “These grants will help modernize the electric grid to reduce impacts of extreme weather and natural disasters while enhancing power sector reliability.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For U.S. energy officials as they allot funding under the grid resilience programs.
  • For Secretary Granholm to seek God’s guidance as she heads the Energy Department.
