In order to assist the State and Territory Energy Offices as they implement programs under the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) of 2021, NASEO will maintain and expand this library of funding opportunities, existing programs, sample request for proposals (RFPs), legislation, and other program documents. Currently, this library includes resources for states on voluntary building energy benchmarking and energy improvement programs, mandatory building energy benchmarking ordinances and building performance standards, shared energy manager programs, and sustainable transportation. Future updates will include program plan templates for states and territories to adapt and use for IIJA and other funding applications to advance the efficient use of affordable and resilient energy and to reduce air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.
This page will be updated and may change significantly as the IIJA is implemented. This model program and policy library is a supplementary resource to NASEO’s IIJA Resource Hub. If your state has sample programs, policies, or documents that should be included in this resource list, please contact Jasmine Xie (email@example.com).
NASEO is available to review state plan drafts and offer technical assistance to state and local jurisdictions on accessing program funding. For more information on state energy planning, please contact Sam Cramer (firstname.lastname@example.org).
To access technical assistance on implementing building performance standards or benchmarking policies, please contact Caterina Hatcher and Brendan Hall from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) at (email@example.com).
