IEED to Fund 15 Tribal Energy Development Capacity Grants Ranging From $10K to $1M

In past years, TEDC grants have enabled Tribes to enact energy regulations, conduct feasibility studies to form Tribal utility authorities, and develop other kinds of legal infrastructure needed to regulate and manage energy resources.

The Office of Indian Energy and Economic Development (IEED) is soliciting applications for the Tribal Energy Development Capacity (TEDC) grant program, Assistant Secretary of Indian Affairs Tara Mac Lean Sweeney announced. 

TEDC will fund approximately 15 grants, ranging in value from approximately $10,000 to $1,000,000 to federally recognized Tribes and Alaska Native villages and entities, and Tribal energy resource development organizations. The money will go to fund feasibility studies for the managerial, technical, and institutional capacity to develop energy resources and account for the resulting energy production and revenues.

In past years, TEDC grants have enabled Tribes to enact energy regulations, conduct feasibility studies to form Tribal utility authorities, and develop other kinds of legal infrastructure needed to regulate and manage energy resources.

“Tribes with lands that are abundant in hydrocarbon and renewable energy resources have assets that can help them achieve their economic self-sufficiency and self-determination goals,” Sweeney said.  “Through IEED’s Tribal Energy Development Capacity grants program, we are working to aid Tribal governments in realizing the benefits of their energy resources now and into the future.  I encourage any tribe wishing to build its managerial, technical and institutional capacity for developing its energy resources to apply for a TEDC grant this year.”

IEED’s solicitation for TEDC funding and details on how to apply can be found in the Federal Register and at Grants.Gov.
