The Idaho Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant program (Idaho EECBG) will provide competitive subawards to cities and counties ineligible for direct grants to enable local governments to promote energy efficiency and conservation practices while continuing to meet the needs of its growing communities, reducing tax burdens, and keeping energy rates low. Section 40552 of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) , also known as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL), provides federal formula grants to States and Indian Tribes to support subgrant funding opportunities for local governments.
