Local Government Greenhouse Gas Pilot Grant Solicitation

[38 Pa.B. 2420]
[Saturday, May 24, 2008]

   The Department of Environmental Protection (Department) announces that on May 24, 2008, the Local Government Greenhouse Gas Pilot Grant solicitation will open. The Department is offering grant funding to municipalities to develop greenhouse gas inventories and emission reduction action plans. For purposes of this grant program, the term ''municipalities'' will be defined as: counties, towns, boroughs and townships of all classes and size.

   Under this solicitation, the Department may award financial assistance in the form of grants of up to $20,000 per municipality. There is a total of $300,000 in funding available in this pilot grant program. Funding may be used to hire a qualified service provider to perform the tasks required by the solicitation. Administrative costs are not eligible.

   This is a competitive solicitation and funding will be determined by the Department. Successful applicants will be progressive municipalities that have, for example, identified and taken action to reduce energy consumption, developed and/or purchased electricity from renewable resources and are addressing land use and transportation through Smart Growth principles. The grant program encourages regional participation among multiple municipalities although there is no such requirement. The Department will be looking for a diverse group of municipalities from throughout this Commonwealth to apply for these grants.

   Guidelines and applications and other grant information may be viewed and downloaded from the Department's web site at (DEP Keyword: ''Grants''). The application deadline is August 29, 2008.
