Grants to Maine nonprofit organizations, for-profits, government agencies, regional planning and economic development organizations, and academic institutions to assist communities in the implementation of energy and climate projects. Grants will support the provision of technical assistance to communities in Maine to reduce energy use and costs, transition to clean energy, and become more resilient to climate change.
This program complements the Service Provider and Community Action grants available through the new Community Resilience Partnership (https://www.maine.gov/future/climate/community-resilience-partnership), with a focus on supporting towns and their service providers to fund and implement priority climate and energy projects.
This pilot project will support qualified service providers to increase their capacity for two (2) years each to work with communities and service providers, helping them identify and secure funding and other resources to implement priority projects that reduce emissions and address climate impacts.
The project will demonstrate innovative and replicable models for regional technical assistance and will inform efforts to support community and regional climate and energy projects, as recommended in the state climate action plan.
For Scope of Services, see pages 7-8 of the RFP in Supporting Documents below.
