The Resilient Electricity Delivery Infrastructure Initiative FOA is focused on local and tribal governments that experienced a Presidentially Declared Major Disaster over the past 30 years. The awards will help communities deploy smart grid tools and technologies that will help decision makers and resource managers improve recovery of electricity delivery services in their communities. Approximately $3.5 million is expected to be available for new awards. The closing date for submission of applications is May 4, 2015. More information about the REDI FOA is available on FedConnect.
The webinar is free, but registration is required.
