Pa. Seeks Comments on ARRA Grant Program

Pennsylvania will accept comments until May 15 on a new grant program made possible through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) that will help local governments and non-profit entities make shovel-ready, energy efficient or conservation projects a reality, Department of Environmental Protection Secretary John Hanger said.

Guidelines for the grant program are available for review and comment at under the heading "Where is your money going?" and then by clicking on "Energy Independence."

"We are seeking input and feedback from the public and local government officials to make sure the state is using its share of the recovery funding as effectively and efficiently as possible," said Hanger. "With revenues falling, many municipalities in Pennsylvania are struggling to balance budgets. We want to make sure that this funding supports projects that ultimately provide significant savings that will, in turn, bolster the local economy."

As a result of ARRA, more than $23 million will be available to local governments and non-profit entities in Pennsylvania through the new Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant program to reduce energy costs and promote conservation.
