Courtesy of ACEC National, this is a general overview of useful IIJA DOE provisions for our members, including links to key DOE implementation sites. All this information is also included on ACEC’s IIJA resource center (ACEC IIJA Resources). As new information is released, regular updates are provided through the ACEC National Water Energy and Environment Committee Updates. Click here to join the ACEC National WEE committee to receive WEE Updates and DOE updates will be sent directly to you as significant announcements are made.
While funding for the transportation and water components of IIJA are starting to flow under existing state formulae programs as expected, only 11 percent of the $62 billion of DOE spending authorized under IIJA energy funds will flow under state formula programs, existing and new. DOE funds are comparatively slower in distribution.
Over the next five years, DOE will develop 60 new, and expand existing programs. The program additions and expansions require DOE to issue requests for information, develop and publish strategies, and follow-on with funding announcements. Most of the major programs are listed with brief descriptions below (see the attachment: “Major DOE BIL/IIJA Program Links”).
The funding generally covers manufacturing, energy efficiency (residential and communities), power (grid upgrades and resilience, nuclear and hydropower maintenance), and commercialization of technologies (demonstration and research hubs, hydrogen, carbon capture, advanced nuclear, and rural demonstrations).
State, Local, Tribal Funding
State and local funding ($7.1B) will be delivered through formula grant funds to state, local, and tribal governments, as well as through competitive solicitations. Details on application requirements and instructions will become available as these various programs are developed. The best way to directly receive announcements is to sign up for notification subscriptions from the DOE.
DOE BIL/IIJA funding flows under state, local, and tribal formula grants include:
