State Project Improvement Grants

The grant was 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 were encouraged to 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 20-01.

$6.5 million in Capital funds were made 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 allows 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.
