Advanced Energy Manufacturing and Recycling Grants
The Advanced Energy Manufacturing and Recycling Grant Program awards financial assistance to small- and medium-sized manufacturers in energy communities to 1) establish new facilities or 2) re-equip or expand existing facilities for the manufacturing or recycling of advanced energy property.
This Program supports the broader government-wide approach to reinvigorating and reinvesting in the American industrial base; establishing secure, resilient domestic energy supply chains; and revitalizing economies in energy communities to maximize the benefits of the clean energy transition as the nation works to curb the climate crisis, empower workers, and advance environmental justice.
Projects supported under the FOA must occur in census tracts where (a)coal mines have closed since December 31, 1999, (b) coal-fired power plant units have closed since December 31, 2009, or (c) in census tracts immediately adjacent to a or b.
Eligible uses are:
1. To re-equip, expand, or establish a manufacturing or recycling facility for the production or recycling of advanced energy technologies (including clean electricity, industrial decarbonization, clean transportation, clean fuels, etc.); or
2. To re-equip an industrial of manufacturing facility with equipment designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions of that facility.
