Look for federal funding for climate projects

Text below from the website:

Wilson Sonsini's Energy and Climate Solutions group is pleased to share our Clean Energy and Climate Solutions Federal Funding Database. A new digital resource, the database will be updated and expanded into a single-source reference that outlines clean energy federal funding opportunities organized into nine categories. It lists current or prospective openings for federal funding applications issued across several government agencies, including the DOE, EPA, USDA, and DOT, among others.

At present, the database is seeded with currently available opportunities funded by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) and previous appropriations, but it will grow over time, and we intend to build in enhanced searchability and other options. As the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 is implemented and subsequent funding announcements pursuant to the BIL and the CHIPS Act of 2022 are announced, the database will be updated with announcements of several billion dollars’ worth of grant, loan, and other non-dilutive awards from the federal government, specific deadlines, opportunities to engage, eligibility requirements, and links to application information. These federal funding opportunities are non-dilutive, support a redundant and therefore stable capital stack, bring a host of reputational benefits, and allow enterprises to leverage federal systems and expertise.

For a general guide to understanding how this federal funding works at a high level, particularly for those with less background on these topics, please see our white paper, Federal Funding Opportunities for Scaling Climate Solutions.
