REQUEST FOR APPLICATIONS
COMMUNITY ENERGY EFFICIENCY DEVELOPMENT (CEED) PROGRAM PROJECTS
The State of New Mexico, Energy, Minerals and Natural Resources Department (EMNRD), Energy Conservation and Management Division (ECMD) is requesting applications from Indian nations, tribes, or pueblos; county or municipal governments; and the New Mexico Mortgage Finance Authority (MFA) for Community Energy Efficiency Development (CEED) Program projects to provide improvements to residential buildings in underserved communities in New Mexico that will in the aggregate, decrease residents’ energy use, energy burden, and/or carbon intensity of energy consumption.
Community energy efficiency projects will target the adoption of energy-efficient consumer behavior, equipment, or devices that result in a decrease in energy consumption without reducing the amount or quality of energy services. This includes health and safety measures, including those that use efficient equipment or devices to improve indoor air or drinking water quality, and equipment or electrification upgrades.
Projects will fall under one of two types. Type 1 Projects are open to all eligible entities for projects located in an application-identified underserved community. Type 2 Projects are reserved for the MFA for projects located across the state. All projects must take place within New Mexico.
