Award Description: The Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant (EECBG) Program provides funding for formula-based grants to states, U.S. territories, units of local government, and Indian tribes. Each state receiving a grant must use not less than 60 percent of the amount received to provide subgrants to units of local government in the state that are not eligible for direct formula grants. The purpose of the EECBG Program is to assist eligible entities in creating and implementing strategies to reduce fossil fuel use, reduce the total energy use and improve energy efficiency in the building sector, the transportation sector, and other appropriate sectors of the eligible entities.
