Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act
The federal Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), also sometimes called the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL), will result in a number of new programs being established by the DOE. A summary of the new funding opportunities created by DOE under the IIJA can be found here
. As the state energy office, MEA will be the applicant for some, but not all, of the new or expanded DOE programs that are directed at state agencies. The IIJA also contains funding opportunities for Maryland entities outside of state government to participate.
As Maryland’s state energy office, MEA will eventually be the applicant for two of the residential-focused IRA rebate programs - the HOMES Residential Energy efficiency Rebate Program and the High-Efficiency Electric Home Rebate Program. More information on these programs can be found here.
