Battery Material Processing Grants

Federal Agency


Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy (EERE)


To ensure the United States has a viable battery materials processing industry by supporting demonstration projects and the construction of facilities for processing battery materials.

Applicant and/or Project Eligibility Requirements

Eligible uses include demonstration projects, construction of commercial-scale facilities, and retrofit or retooling of existing battery material processing facilities.

Decarbonization Considerations

Materials processing is a necessary step in manufacturing batteries. Increasing the supply of processed battery materials could decrease the cost of battery-based electricity storage, and more reliable domestic production could reduce price volatility. This could be part of a clean energy economy strategy.

Equity Considerations

See the "Equity Design Considerations for Federal Funding" for general considerations and additional sector-based resources:
