Inflation Reduction Act: Section 50131. Request for Information (RFI): Technical Assistance for Latest and Zero Building Energy Code Adoption $2.00

This Request for Information (RFI) is soliciting feedback from state and local governments, building officials, contractors, designers, builders, other industry representatives, community organizations, academia, research laboratories, and other stakeholders on issues related to key provisions in Section 50131 of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA). The DOE Office of State and Community Energy Programs (SCEP) is interested in information on supporting the development, adoption, and implementation of the latest model building energy codes and zero building energy codes for residential and commercial, new and existing buildings (or equivalent codes, standards, or policies) throughout the U.S. in accordance with Section 50131 of the IRA. The IRA provides direction on certain high-level eligibility criteria and overall goals but does not detail how to develop and effectively implement an IRA codes program that will empower States and local jurisdictions to update their building energy codes and standards for new and existing buildings. Therefore, to further support program development, this RFI specifically seeks input on 1) selection criteria; 2) other funding sources, 3) compliance plans; and 4) existing-building opportunities. The information collected from this RFI will be used by DOE for planning purposes to develop a potential Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA). The information collected will not be published. This is solely a Request for Information and not a FOA. SCEP is not accepting applications at this time. A Notice of Intent (NOI) is being issued together with this RFI. Additional information regarding a potential FOA supporting Technical Assistance for the Adoption of the Latest and Zero Building Energy Codes or Standards is available in that NOI (DE-FOA-0003055). The full content of the NOI announcement can be found on the Clean Energy Infrastructure Exchange website at https://infrastructure-exchange.energy.gov. The purpose of this RFI is to gather feedback from stakeholders prior to DOE potentially issuing a FOA. This RFI is not a FOA; therefore, DOE is not accepting applications at this time. All responses to this RFI must be provided as Microsoft Word attachments and submitted electronically to iracodes@hq.doe.gov no later than 5:00pm ET on April 26, 2023. A public workshop to gather additional input on this potential FOA will be held on April 18, 2023 at 2:00pm ET. To register for the public workshop, please visit: https://pnnl.zoomgov.com/webinar/register/WN_yKIg2RtNRh6OQC53b1ba0A.

Notice of Intent to Issue IRA Section 50131 Funding Opportunity Announcement No. DE-FOA-0003056 Technical Assistance for the Adoption of the Latest and Zero Building Energy Codes or Standards $2.00

This Notice of Intent (NOI) is to inform state and local governments that the Office of State and Community Energy Programs (SCEP) intends to issue a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) entitled “Technical Assistance for the Adoption of the Latest and Zero Building Energy Codes or Standards Funding Opportunity Announcement.” SCEP anticipates funding state and local efforts to update building energy codes, or equivalent standards, and to develop effective code workforce, training, compliance and enforcement programs. This is solely a notice of intent and not a FOA. SCEP is not accepting applications at this time. The NOI describes a preliminary plan that will evolve during the FOA development process. The state cost share requirement that applies to traditional State Energy Program funding will not apply to this IRA funding. To ensure adopted codes are successfully implemented, Section 50131 will also specify that each jurisdiction receiving grant funds must implement a plan to achieve full compliance in new and renovated residential and commercial buildings. This compliance plan must include active training and enforcement programs and measurement of the rate of compliance each year. The purpose of this NOI is to alert stakeholders prior to DOE/SCEP potentially issuing a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA). This NOI is not a FOA; therefore, DOE/SCEP is not accepting applications at this time. The full content of the announcement can be found on the Clean Energy Infrastructure Exchange website at https://infrastructure-exchange.energy.gov.

FY 2023 American Spaces Digital Literacy and Training Program $1,900,000.00

The Office of American Spaces of the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA), U.S. Department of State, announces an open competition to administer a new award in the field of digital and media literacy and countering disinformation, the FY 2023 American Spaces Digital Literacy and Training Program. The American Spaces Digital Literacy and Training Program is designed to support the work of American Spaces in the field through training of overseas Spaces target audiences and staff/coordinators; the curation, compilation and (as needed) creation of training materials and content; the organization and implementation of training activities and exchanges, locally, regionally and to the United States; and outreach and other activities. The program will provide training for overseas staff of American Spaces and for American Spaces audiences of media professionals, information specialists, librarians, educators, and other relevant professionals and citizens, aimed at increasing digital, information and media literacy, building trust, and strengthening understanding abroad of the role of a free and independent media as a pillar of democracy. The FY 2023 program will consist primarily of regionally focused efforts, to include curriculum development, training, and content delivery to promote U.S. values and digital and media literacy skills to counter Russian and other foreign disinformation efforts in selected regions of Europe and in Central Asia, for and at up to approximately 150 American Spaces in designated priority countries. The curriculum plan must include at least one asynchronous, self-guided and self-paced digital/online learning tool for public audiences in all priority countries. The program also includes support for global activities to bolster American Spaces programming and outreach, to include at least one training, mentoring, and cultural visit to the United States for select American Spaces staff affiliated with partner organizations, as well as social media message map development and implementation and deployment strategies. American Spaces are the U.S. government’s primary public cultural and information centers abroad. They serve as key public diplomacy platforms for U.S. missions to connect with local audiences. They provide free and open access to information and learning resources for communities worldwide, serving as harbors of freedom of expression and innovation, including within societies characterized by political oppression and censorship. American Spaces programming promotes U.S. foreign policy objectives and American values, including democratic institutions, the rule of law, open and free markets, and human rights, attracting hundreds of thousands of visitors and program participants (virtual and in person) each year. Approximately 150 American Spaces are active in 33 priority countries in Europe and Central Asia (listed under Program Specific Guidelines below, that may be adjusted by ECA to reflect evolving priorities) where the region-specific program elements must be focused. Please see the full announcement for additional information.
