Funding from the President’s Investing in America Agenda will help seven states, three tribal nations to strengthen grid resilience and deliver cheaper, cleaner energy to communities across America

As part of President Joe Biden’s Investing in America agenda, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced seven states, three tribal nations and the District of Columbia to be selected as the second cohort to receive more than $77 million in Grid Resilience State and Tribal Formula Grants.

Supported by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, the grants will help modernise the electric grid to reduce impacts of extreme weather and natural disasters while also ensuring power sector reliability. This historic funding is helping deliver on the President’s goal of ensuring all communities have access to affordable, reliable, 100% clean electricity.

“As climate change threats intensify and we add more renewable energy to our power system, it is critical that the American people have a safe and resilient electric grid,” said U.S. Secretary of Energy, Jennifer M. Granholm.

President Biden’s Investing in America agenda is helping to  grow the American economy — from rebuilding the nation’s infrastructure, to creating a manufacturing and innovation boom powered by good-paying jobs that don’t require a four-year university degree, to building a clean-energy economy that will help mitigate climate change and make  communities more resilient.

The States and tribes awarded funding for fiscal years (FY) 22 and 23 in the announcement included The Coushatta Tribe of Louisiana, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa and The Mohegan Tribe.

The recipients are the second cohort to receive funding under the Grid Resilience State and Tribal Formula Grants, administered by DOE’s Grid Deployment Office.

Additional awards will be announced on a rolling basis in the coming weeks and months as applications are received.
