Missed this article in the FWST the other day:
Tarrant County municipal governments will share more than $16 million in energy-efficiency and conservation grants as part of the federal stimulus package, the Energy Department said Thursday.
The amounts include $6.7 million for Fort Worth, $3.4 million for Arlington and $2.4 million for the county. Bedford, Euless, Grand Prairie, Grapevine, Haltom City, Keller, Mansfield and North Richland Hills will also receive grants.
The money is part of $3.2 billion in grants nationwide, including $209 million in Texas. It is targeted for energy audits and retrofits, development of new building codes, and projects that reduce total energy use and emissions, among other uses.
Tarrant County spokesman Marc Flake said an ongoing energy-efficiency program for county buildings should qualify for the money. “We just need to match up the projects with the program requirements,” he said.
I will send an email off to Dan O’Leary to see what he knows about this grant.
