Clean Energy Community Actions

Launched in August 2016, the Clean Energy Communities (CEC) program provides grants, coordinator support, and a clear path forward to local governments that demonstrate leadership with clean energy initiatives. To build on the success of the initial program, the CEC Leadership Round was launched in January 2021 and includes new and improved actions and additional funding.
