Notice of Funding Availability – Carbon Neutrality Strategy

Friday, December 14, 2018

DOEE seeks eligible entities (called “Applicants”) to develop a strategy for how the District will achieve its goal to become carbon neutral by 2050. The amount available for the project is up to $240,000.00 for one grant award. The applicant will propose a plan to help DOEE craft a strategy that: assesses the policy and technology pathways that will ensure that we achieve carbon neutrality and are climate resilient by 2050; identifies the highest priority next steps we need to accelerate in the near term; and fulfills the District’s commitment to the Paris Climate Agreement by aligning with C40’s Climate Action Planning Framework. The grantee’s work will be the foundation for stakeholder engagement and ultimately for the final strategy, which the District has committed to adopting by the end of 2020.
