Project funding and student interns available through DEED


From the January 30, 2013 issue of Public Power Daily

Originally published January 30, 2013

Applications are open for the spring 2013 cycle of scholarships and grants under APPA's Demonstration of Energy & Efficiency Developments (DEED) program. Applications are due by Feb. 15.

Utility members of APPA’s DEED grant program may apply for innovative project funding up to $125,000. DEED policy recently changed – now members can apply for as much as $125,000 in funding on a single project. 

Utilities can use $4,000 in DEED funds to hire an intern from a local university to work at their utility. The deadline for applications for both scholarships and grants is Feb. 15. The grant application is web-based and is designed to be simple so that even small utilities with minimal staff resources can easily apply for project funding.

The DEED board of directors meets in the spring and fall every year to award funding. Since its inception in 1980, DEED has awarded more than $10 million through utility grants and scholarships. 

Send an email to DEED@PublicPower.org for access to the applications and questions. For more details on the application process, visit the DEED funding section of the APPA website at www.PublicPower.org/DEED.
