State Project Improvement Grants

The grant is available to projects at state owned facilities funded under the 2019 – 21 Capital Budget. State agencies and institutions with projects that can be redesigned to increase efficiency and environmental performance can apply for this grant to cover the increased costs.

The State Project Improvement Grant program is part of the Energy Efficiency and Solar Grants Program and was formerly known as the Minor Works Grant or the Energy Enhancement Grant. This grant has been developed in partnership with the State Efficiency and Environmental Performance (SEEP) Office, and is consistent with the goals of Governor Inslee’s Executive Order 18-01.

$6.5 million in Capital funds will be available to cover the additional costs incurred by choosing more efficient project options– such as higher efficiency heating systems or windows. By offering this grant, the state is leading by example, investing in Washington’s clean energy future.

This grant will allow state agencies and institutions to invest in infrastructure that is more energy efficient. By investing now, operational and lifetime costs and environmental impacts are reduced.
