Clean Hydrogen Manufacturing and Recycling Program

Federal Agency


Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy (EERE)


To support R&D and demonstration projects that advance new clean hydrogen production, processing, delivery, and storage; use equipment manufacturing technologies and techniques; and increase the reuse and recycling of clean hydrogen technologies.

Applicant and/or Project Eligibility Requirements

Industry stakeholders are eligible to apply. Local governments are encouraged to partner with the private sector as sub-applicants.

Decarbonization Considerations

Clean hydrogen is a potential substitute for carbon-based fuels. Developing effective production, storage, and recycling methods can help ensure sufficient supply of this resource. Municipalities and local leaders can partner to create regional hydrogen clusters, working in tandem with private entities.

Equity Considerations

The Clean Hydrogen Manufacturing Initiative aims to support domestic supply chains for materials and components, operating in partnership with tribal energy development organizations, Indian Tribes, Tribal organizations, Native Hawaiian community-based organizations, and territories/freely associated States. Preference will be given to projects in economically distressed areas in the major natural gas-producing regions of the United States.
