U.S. Department of Energy: Key Grant Programs
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) recognizes that rural areas face unique barriers to accessing and creating cost-effective and efficient clean energy.
Together, the U.S. Departments of Energy and Transportation are investing in rural energy infrastructure for clean transportation in the remote and low-population areas that stand to benefit from it most. Through partnerships that create jobs and relationships in rural America, DOE funds opportunities ranging from pilots of mobility technologies supporting entire regions, down to individual drivers’ lower-cost access to electric vehicles or alternative fuels.
