Sustainable Communities program
Reducing emissions, improving energy efficiency
Whether you're leading the way to high-performance buildings, implementing home energy retrofit programs, or looking to make it easier for your residents to switch to electric vehicles, we want to help.
We provide expertise, education, and funding to help eligible local governments improve energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) in their communities.
We provide funding to hire staff, conduct research and training, and develop policies and programs to help your community advance energy efficiency and low carbon electrification. We can also connect you with our industry partners so you can work together on achieving your goals.
