Still time to apply for Energy Education grant; proposals are due April 5, 2019

The Minnesota State Energy Office (SEO), within the Minnesota Department of Commerce (COMM) Energy Division, has developed a small grants program called the “Energy Education Grant Program” to promote energy education at the local level. This program will award grants of up to $5,000 to carry out energy education initiatives.

The grant opportunity is available to qualified applicants, either individuals or partnerships, who are educators at schools, learning centers, or other educational programs. Grant awards are designed to be used for expenses (primarily focused on the purchase of energy education kits, training materials, and curricula) to develop or encourage increased participation in educational initiatives that promote the use of energy efficiency and renewable energy and that empower, inspire, and motivate a new generation of energy leaders, of all ages and backgrounds, in communities around Minnesota.

The Department welcomes questions from potential responders. All questions concerning this RFP are due by March 29 and are to be submitted by email to the Grants Staff at

A Request for Proposals (RFP) and required forms for the Energy Education Grant Program (COMM_SEO04_20190315) opportunity are available for download on the Commerce RFP webpage.

Proposals submitted for this RFP must be received no later than Friday, April 5, 2019 at 11:59 p.m. CT. Late proposals will not be considered. Instructions for submitting proposals are detailed in the RFP.
