Section 40101(d) Formula Grants to States & Indian Tribes

Under Section 40101(d) Formula Grant Program of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL), the Department of Energy will provide grants to States (this includes Indian Tribes, U.S. Territories and the District of Columbia) to improve the resilience of their electric grids. States may further allocate funds to “eligible entities”, as defined by Section 40101(d). These grants offer a unique opportunity to advance the capabilities of States and their communities to address not only current, but future resilience needs, as well. The requirements of this formula grant program are defined within Section 40101(d) of the BIL. Section 40101(d) stipulates that DOE allocate funding annually through grants to States according to a formula that includes such parameters as population, land area, and the historical precedence for experiencing disruptive events. The Notice of Intent (NOI), linked below, provides information on DOE’s plans (subject to revision based on comments received in response to NOI) for implementation of Section 40101(d) of the BIL.
