Renew America’s Schools Program (Exp. Early Summer, 2024)
The U.S. Department of Energy will be accepting 2024 applications for the Renew America's Schools Program this spring. This competitive award focuses on funding infrastructure upgrades at K–12 public school facilities, prioritizing high-need school communities. As part of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL), it aims to help school communities lower utilities costs, improve indoor air quality, and foster healthier learning environments. The opportunity marks the start of a second round of funding related to the program. However, applications will be open to all eligible entities regardless of past participation.
Eligible projects include energy infrastructure improvements that reduce building operating costs—like new HVAC and ventilation systems, building envelope and lighting projects, and renewable energy technologies. Funding is also available for alternative fueled vehicles and alternative fueled vehicle infrastructure.
