Organizer

Department of Energy Technical Assistance Program (TAP)

The Department of Energy’s (DOE) Technical Assistance Program (TAP) supports the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant Program (EECBG) and the State Energy Program (SEP) by providing state, local, and tribal officials the tools and resources needed to implement successful and sustainable clean energy programs.
Through TAP, DOE has launched a $25 millon effort to assist EECBG and SEP Recovery Act recipients. This effort, which is jointly-funded with EECBG and SEP Recovery Act dollars, is aimed at accelerating payments, improving 
project and program performance, and increasing the return on Recovery Act investments.
