About the job
The Office of State and Community Energy Programs (SCEP) works with state and local organizations to significantly accelerate the deployment of clean energy technologies, catalyze local economic development and create jobs, reduce energy costs, and avoid pollution through place-based strategies involving a wide range of government, community, business, and other stakeholders. In total, SCEP manages programs totaling $16 billion, including foundational programs like the Weatherization Assistance Program and State Energy Program, and newly formed programs such as the Local Government Energy Program and Energy Futures Grants.
Within SCEP, selected fellows will be part of the The Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant Programteam. The Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant (EECBG) Program is a $550 million formula- and competitive- grant program that provides direct and flexible funding to more than 2,700 state, local, and Tribal governments across the United States. The EECBG Program is designed to be highly flexible and to meet community needs. Specifically, eligible entities can choose to implement projects aligned to over 14 eligible clean energy use areas. Under the guidance of a mentor, fellows will support the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant Program while learning about the role of a Project Officer in managing Federal grants to state, local, and Tribal governments.
Fellowships last one year and are renewable for up to five years. Interested applicants are encouraged to apply as soon as possible. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis.
