Welcome to the Oregon Department of Energy’s Community Renewable Energy Grant Program. In 2021, the Oregon legislature passed HB 2021, which created a $50 million fund at ODOE to provide grants for planning and developing community renewable energy and energy resilience projects. The Community Renewable Energy Grant Program is open to Oregon Tribes, public bodies, and consumer-owned utilities.

The application deadline for the first round of opportunity announcements has passed. A new round of opportunity announcements is expected to be opened later in 2022. Applicants who submitted an application in the first round can view their application and check its status by selecting ‘I would like to view/check the status of my application(s)’ from the drop down menu below. Applicants wishing to withdraw their application can do so using the same drop down menu.

If you are interested in the program, please sign up for email updates or visit the program webpage.
