Program Description:
  Available to nonprofit organizations and local governments, the Maryland Energy Administration’s (MEA) Low-to-Moderate Income Grant Program is designed to support energy efficiency projects and activities for low-to-moderate income (LMI) Marylanders. Grants are awarded for energy efficiency projects that generate significant reductions in energy use and pass on the benefits of the savings to Maryland’s LMI residents. The LMI program allocates funding regionally based on the number of LMI households located within the respective region to ensure an equitable distribution of grant funds. Grants are then competitively awarded within the applicant pool for each region.
