Who says the stimulus package isn’t trickling down?
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 provides Arkansas with $5 million in funding for the Energy Efficiency Conservation Block Grant (EECBG) Program to provide grants to small cities and counties for energy efficiency and renewable energy projects. The Arkansas EECBG program will assist local governments in implementing strategies to reduce fossil fuel emissions, reduce total energy use, improve energy efficiency and deploy market-ready renewable energy technologies.
Small cities and counties can apply for funding through this competitive grant program. The Arkansas Energy Office has partnered with Winrock International to administer this program. Grant applications are due April 30, 2010.
