In order to assist the State and Territory Energy Offices as they implement programs under the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) and the Inflation Reduction Act (2022), NASEO has developed this library of sample program documents (including RFPs) that may be adapted for use in the design and implementation of new programs. Currently, this library highlights buildings and transportation-focused program resources, including those from voluntary and mandatory building energy improvement programs, shared energy manager programs, and those compiled in the EV States Clearinghouse.
This page will be updated and may change significantly as IIJA and IRA are implemented. This model program and policy library is a supplementary resource to NASEO’s IIJA Resource Hub. If your state has sample programs, policies, or documents that should be included in this resource list, please contact Jasmine Xie (firstname.lastname@example.org).
NASEO is available to review state plan drafts and offer technical assistance to state and local jurisdictions on accessing program funding. For more information on state energy planning, please contact Sam Cramer (email@example.com).
NASEO has compiled a Buildings-Focused Federal Funding Tracker in partnership with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that summarizes provisions and key funding opportunities from the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) of 2021, the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) of 2022, and grant offerings by federal agencies that may be leveraged by building owners, state agencies, and local entities to advance efforts to efficiently electrify and improve the energy efficiency of new and existing buildings. Details on individual funding opportunities from various federal programs can be found below.
To access technical assistance on implementing building performance standards or benchmarking policies, please contact Caterina Hatcher and Brendan Hall from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) at (firstname.lastname@example.org).
