How to apply...
The standard application forms as furnished by DOE and required by 10 CFR Part 600 must be used to apply for financial assistance, as further specified in the competitive solicitation. A separate application must be submitted for each DOE Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) Program Area of Interest.

All applications which pass an initial review will receive an objective merit review. Objective Merit Review Committees will evaluate applications based on the evaluation criteria set forth in the competitive solicitation. After the Merit Review Committee has completed its evaluations, an EERE Office Director or other program official will evaluate the applications against program policy factors set forth in the competitive solicitation. Final decisions will be made by the EERE Assistant Secretary, Deputy Assistant Secretaries, and the Director of the Federal Energy Management Program.
Note: Grant payments may be made by a letter of credit, advance by Treasury check, or reimbursement by Treasury check.
Awards may be made by the headquarters office directly to the applicant, an agency field office, a regional office,
or by an authorized county office. The assistance may pass through the initial applicant for further distribution by
intermediate level applicants to groups or individuals in the private sector.
