Energy Department Distributes Eighth Round of Grid Resilience Grants

$167 million is administered to modernize local electrical grids.

The Department of Energy distributed funding to the eighth round of recipients of the Grid Resilience and Tribal Formula Grants, allowing 11 states, 2 territories, and 20 Tribal nations to update their electrical grids. The $167 million will be used to modernize grid technology by reducing the frequency of power interruptions, increasing workforce opportunities, and strengthening electrical infrastructure for increases in extreme weather.

“A modern, reliable grid is a critical feature to expanding access and use of clean power sources,” said Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm. “President Biden’s Investing in America agenda is providing states and Tribes with historic funding to prepare for a more resilient, clean energy future, one that delivers more local jobs and ensures that the lights stay on in the face of extreme weather events.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Granholm as she oversees the awarding of grants to improve power grid resilience.
  • For Energy Department officials as they assess the vulnerability of grant applicants to severe weather outages.
