A new program to help communities take control of their energy future

The Department of Energy recently announced the launch of a new program to assist communities in the transition to renewable energy. The program – called Communities Local Energy Action or Communities LEAP – aims to help communities take control of their clean energy future. 

The DOE will distribute funding to 22 communities that will help create action plans that reduce air pollution, lower utility costs, and provide long term jobs. The goal is to empower communities to develop place-based approaches to building their own clean energy economy. 

LEAP will also provide the opportunity to access additional DOE and federal government funding, including from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. Specific concentration areas include:
