  • LEAP Supports Community Energy Justice – Learn More

The U.S. Department of Energy is hosting an information webinar, Sept. 28, from 11:30 a.m.–4 p.m., on the Communities Local Energy Action Program (LEAP), a new pilot initiative to support communities currently experiencing either direct environmental justice impacts, or direct economic impacts from a shift away from historical reliance on fossil fuels. Under this pilot initiative, DOE will provide technical assistance services valued at up to $16 million, which will support 24–36 communities to develop their own community-driven clean energy transition approach.

This webinar is intended for potential community applicants to the Communities LEAP pilot. DOE staff will provide an overview of the program, including eligibility, application requirements, application schedule and deadlines, and evaluation criteria.
