Funding Opportunities

Funding Terms

The U.S. Department of Energy publicizes available funding through competitive funding opportunity announcements(FOAs), similar to requests for proposals (RFPs) or solicitations.

Laws and Incentives

Clean Cities’ Alternative Fuels Data Center maintains a comprehensive database of Federal and State Laws and Incentives related to alternative fuels and vehicles, air quality, fuel efficiency, and other transportation—related topics.

Securing funding is critical to the success of efforts to cut petroleum use in transportation. Funding opportunities for Clean Cities projects are available from many sources inside and outside the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).

Clean Cities has awarded more than $300 million to fund hundreds of projects across the country that cut petroleum use in transportation. Visit the Clean Cities projects page to learn more.

When applying for funding, contact your Clean Cities coordinator for help navigating the process successfully.
