Identify Funding for Your Priorities

Navigating federal funding for local climate action and making strategic decisions on how to best pursue opportunities can be overwhelming and challenging. Our Federal Funding Opportunities for Local Decarbonization (FFOLD) tool helps local governments prioritize and leverage existing federal funding to advance system-wide energy transition goals—from block grants and technical assistance to competitive grants and loans. The tool’s filters allow you to filter available funding sources automatically and focus on the funding sources relevant to your project, goals, and community.

This tool, Federal Funding Opportunities for Local Decarbonization (FFOLD), focuses on energy sector emissions, including electricity, transportation, buildings, and resilient energy systems. It does not explicitly capture funding for other sustainability solutions. FFOLD focuses on programs for state, local, and tribal entities. Local agencies/authorities generally include cities, counties, towns, public utility providers, transit agencies, airports, ports, and local educational agencies (e.g. school districts). For additional clarifications and definitions, download FFOLD and refer to the Glossary of Terms tab.


FFOLD will be updated on a quarterly basis until otherwise noted. This version of FFOLD was last updated April 2023.
