Alaska Heat Smart 1 of 9 National Grant Awardees!

Alaska Heat Smart and partners to lower energy costs for nonprofits across Alaska!

On October 25, Alaska Heat Smart was announced as a ‘Prime Selectee’ for the Renew America’s Nonprofits grant, a funding opportunity from the Office of State and Community Energy Programs (SCEP) at the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). We and eight other Prime Selectees from across the country will share $45 million in awards to help other nonprofits implement high-impact energy improvements in their buildings, creating cleaner and healthier community spaces, and generating energy savings that can be redirected to mission-critical work.

This $3.9M grant will allow Alaska Heat Smart and partners from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory – Alaska Campus (NREL), and Information Insights (II), to develop a statewide program to improve energy efficiency and reduce annual operating costs of up to twenty-five nonprofit Alaska buildings that serve lower to middle income and disadvantaged populations in the health and housing sectors.
