V.I. Energy Office Grants Available

Oct. 9, 2004 – The fall cycle of the Virgin Islands Energy Office's Discretionary Grant Program is open, according to a release from Dean C. Plaskett, commissioner, Planning and Natural Resources department.
DPNR encourages and aims to expand energy efficient/renewable energy projects through competitive grant-seeking proposals. The program seeks to fund projects that benefit the entire community, or a significant percent of the population. The funds are awarded to selected proposals that include a cost-share (in-kind or cash) of at least 20 percent, Plaskett said.
Eligible to apply are not-for-profit organizations, government agencies, schools and institutions.
Eligible projects include research and education, building retrofits and energy efficient/solar outdoor lighting.
Grant amounts for discretionary grants are up to $20,000. Mini-grants, for schools, teachers, youth organizations and parent/teacher associations, are up to $1,500.
Deadline for application is Nov. 30.
Applications are available on St. Thomas on the second floor of the Cyril E. King Terminal Building. On St. Croix, applications are available at No. 45 Mars Hill, Frederiksted. On St. John, applications are available at the St. John Administrators office. For more information, please contact Anthony Richards, senior program analyst, at 774-3320, ext. 6108.
