Going green is one of the smartest decisions a social or human services organization can make. Renewable energy and energy efficiency funding allows organizations to get the financing they need while creating the most environmentally friendly projects possible.
Federal and state government incentives include tax credits for “green buildings” utilizing solar energy, combined heat and power systems, alternative fuels, or EnergyStar-compliant products. These programs can be combined with other federal funding programs, such as New Markets or Historic Tax Credits.
Applying for these dollars can be complicated. Several programs are designed for the more mature, shovel-ready type of projects. For most programs, applicants must to be prepared to validate their project and provide product guarantors through cooperative agreements, partnerships, a solid business plan, technology agreements, permits, site control, and a pipeline of prospective clients. The project-planning phase prior to even attempting to submit can take months to prepare.
