Green Building Fund Grant Program

Friday, December 17, 2021

Launched in 2013, the Green Building Fund Grant Program supports innovative projects to “green” the built environment in the District. Grant projects focus on research, education, engagement, innovation, and implementation to help the District lead the way in enacting innovative policies that drive toward greater social, environmental, and economic sustainability for our city. New grant opportunities are available on a rolling basis and posted on the DOEE Grants page.

Current Funding Opportunity

DOEE is seeking eligible entities to help refine what the District’s path to electrification should look like with respect to the priorities and challenges of disadvantaged communities. This project will support DOEE’s community engagement on the concepts of equitable electrification and decarbonization of homes and buildings.  

Nonprofit organizations, faith-based organizations, and private enterprises are eligible to apply. The amount available for the project is approximately $75,000. 

The deadline for application submissions is August 22, 2022 at 11:59 pm. DOEE will host a virtual Q&A session on Wednesday, August 3, 2022, from 10-11 am, via WebEx.

In the Summer of 2022, DOEE awarded Green Building Innovation Assistance Grants to four teams working on grant projects that will (1) reduce the environmental impacts of the built environment in the District, and (2) increase industry knowledge and capacity to design, construct, and operate high-performing buildings. The grantees are using one or more of the following green building strategies:
