President Obama recently released his $4 trillion Fiscal Year 2016 federal budget, a wish list of items he wants to pursue in his last full year in office. It’s only a wish list because it must be passed by politicians on both sides of the aisle. After that, any approved amounts have to be turned into funding programs and announcements.  So while this budget is anything but definite there are several points of interest for the grant world. Theoretically, you will have plenty of time to prepare for any resulting requests for proposals. FY 2016 is from October 1, 2015 through September 30, 2016.

In 2010, the City Council of Asheville, North Carolina adopted a goal of reducing its carbon footprint by 20% over five years. They adopted a broad range of initiatives with the largest project replacing all 9,000 of the city’s street lights with energy efficient LED fixtures. Of the 17 environmental projects totaling over $10 million in project costs, over half were funded through grants. . For example, the community used funding from The Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant Program from the U.S. Department Energy for phase one of the street light project. The grants totaled over $4 million, 42% of the city’s total costs In the end, the community is expecting to save over 2,000 tons of carbon dioxide just by changing the street lights. Additionally, the environmental projects will also save the city millions of dollars in energy reduction.
