Energy Improvement Matching Grants

Deadline to apply is November 15, 2014, there is only one grant cycle

Any congregation or faith-based community (including faith-based schools) that has received a Power Wise Energy Audit is eligible to apply for up to $10,000 in Matching Grants to implement the Energy Conservation Measures suggested in their Energy Audit Reports.

This program, which is made possible by the generous support of the Kendeda Foundation, helps congregations make energy efficiency improvements that would otherwise be cost-prohibitive. See below for a number of projects that have been funded in the past.
