The WA Department of Commerce is hosting three “listening sessions,” to gather feedback on their Energy Retrofits for Public Buildings program (formerly the EE Grants program). The sessions are scheduled for 12/2 (registration is full for this date), 12/6 and 12/8. Please consider attending if there is feedback you would like to share, or if you would prefer, you can share your thoughts with Kerry and she will consolidate them into her comments at the 12/8 session. More details and links to register can be found below.
- Listening Session 2: Monday, Dec 6, 3:30pm to 5pm – Register here
- Listening Session 3 Wednesday, Dec 8, 10:30am to noon – Register here
At the listening sessions we hope to learn about the varying needs of communities in Washington, the diversity of community goals and particular barriers you face in being able to access these grants. Your input will help us design our 2022 funding rounds to increase grant access and better meet your community’s priorities.
Over the next several months, we will finalize the details about which applicants and projects are eligible and our criteria for selecting projects. We expect to publish the Request for Applications and begin accepting applications in early 2022.
