FY22 Resiliency Hub Grant Program

Program Description:  This program provides grant funding for the development and construction of solar plus energy storage systems to serve as “Resiliency Hubs.”  During periods of grid outage, the solar plus energy storage system (with or without emergency generator), will provide a no-cost resiliency center for the surrounding Low and Moderate Income (LMI) residents.  At a minimum, Resiliency Hubs provide emergency heating and cooling; refrigeration of temperature sensitive medications; plug power for charging of cell phone and computer batteries; ventilation and emergency lighting.  

Program Purpose:  The program is designed to foster the development of Resiliency Hubs that can support Maryland Communities, with an emphasis on serving LMI residents.  Resiliency services can greatly reduce stress to residents of the community during electricity outages and can provide the local government with an additional resource to meet the community’s need for electricity during extended grid outages.
