DEED Awards Almost $2 Million in Community Energy Transition Grants
Minnesota Ag Connection - 02/18/2021

The Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED) awarded $1.94 million in grants to five communities across Minnesota to address the economic dislocation associated with the closing of local electric generating plants.

DEED's Community Energy Transition Grants Program awarded the funding, which will provide a range of economic assistance for eligible communities, including projects that increase a community's lost property tax base and that create alternative economic development strategies to plan for financial challenges and to attract new employers to the community.

"These grants are critical to helping communities across Minnesota transition their economies as clean energy growth in Minnesota continues," said DEED Commissioner Steve Grove. "These funds will help communities recover with a reimagined economic future."

DEED's Community Energy Transition Grants cover up to 100%, or $500,000, of the costs to improve the economic outlook in these hard-hit communities. Go to the DEED website for more information on the Community Energy Transition Grants Program.
