Funded in 2009 as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grants (EECBG) are empowering thousands of cities and counties to create new clean energy jobs through investments in building efficiency, community scale renewable energy, and other projects that save energy. However, the grant program will end in 2011 without action by the Obama Administration and Congress.
Climate Communities has organized the Energy Block Grants Work! campaign to:
- Convince President Obama to fully fund the EECBG program at $2 billion in his FY 2012 budget request to Congress, and
- Urge Congress to include an ongoing source of funding for the EECBG program in proposed climate/energy legislation.
The toolkit contains a variety of tools you can use to help save Energy Block Grants The kit contains draft documents that you can customize to help promote your community’s successes. These model documents include:
- Press Release for Community Event
- Invitation to Attend Community Event
- Letter to President Obama
- Highlighting Local EECBG Successes
