Funding Opportunities

DOE | Re-X Before Recycling Prize 

DOE’s Advanced Materials and Manufacturing Technologies Office launched the three-phase Re-X Before Recycling Prize. The prize is looking for innovations that could keep materials in use beyond a single life cycle and increase the recovery and reuse rate of end-of-use products. Extending the lifecycles of these products reduces the embodied energy and carbon of manufactured goods, strengthens regional manufacturing supply chains, increases U.S. security of supply, create jobs, and reduces environmental burdens related to landfilling, incineration, and extraction. 

Due Date: 12 March 2024

MassCEC | Embodied Carbon Reduction Challenge 

MassCEC has engaged Built Environment Plus (BE+) to conduct an Embodied Carbon Challenge for new construction and major renovation projects in Massachusetts.  Submissions with replicable, innovative, and impactful changes to reduce embodied carbon in their projects will be best positioned for prizes. 

This Challenge has two goals: 

  • Demonstrate low-cost, high-impact changes that significantly reduce embodied carbon 

  • Assist design teams in gaining expertise to advise clients about options for reducing embodied carbon, including using tools to estimate embodied carbon impacts 

Due Date: 31 March 2024

NYSERDA | Empire Technology Prize 

The Empire Technology Prize is focused on finding groundbreaking solutions to tackle the greatest single source of GHG emissions from New York’s tall buildings – heating. Solutions that will be significantly easier for tall building owners to adopt – in short, high GHG reduction, minimally disruptive to install, with a path to cost competitiveness. 

Due Date: 22 March 2024. Learn More>> 

HUD | Green and Resilient Retrofit Program (GRRP) 

Funding for direct loans and grants to fund projects that improve energy or water efficiency, enhance indoor air quality, implement zero-emission electricity generation, building electrification, or address climate resilience. Eligible owners primarily include owners receiving HUD rental assistance under Multifamily Section 8 project-based rental assistance, Section 202 Supportive Housing for Low-Income Elderly, and Section 811 Supportive Housing for Low-Income Persons with Disabilities. 

Due Date: Ongoing in quarterly funding rounds. Learn More>> 


DOE | New Resources for States and Other Stakeholders 

DOE has released resources to help states implement and evaluate their Home Energy Rebates and help stakeholders get their questions answered. The recommendations in this document provide high-level guidance to states as they plan and implement their own evaluations. These recommendations provide an overview and best practices of evaluations and recommended studies, including timing, objectives, and recommended evaluation tasks.
