RESTORE Act Direct Component - Construction and Real Property Acquisition Activities $110,099,450.00

Under the Resources and Ecosystems Sustainability, Tourist Opportunities, and Revived Economies of the Gulf Coast States Act of 2012 (RESTORE Act), Subtitle F of P.L. 112-141, the Gulf Coast Restoration Trust Fund (Trust Fund) was established in the Treasury of the United States. Eighty percent of the civil penalties paid after July 6, 2012, under the Federal Water Pollution Control Act in connection with the Deepwater Horizon oil spill will be deposited into the Trust Fund and invested. The RESTORE Act created five components through which funds will be disbursed. Treasury is publishing multiple funding opportunity notices as part of the RESTORE Act. This announcement applies only to the Direct Component, and is only for applications for eligible non-construction activities, including projects with or without a non-federal share for another federally funded project. This announcement also includes planning assistance needed to prepare the Multiyear Implementation Plan (Multiyear Plan) required by the RESTORE Act. For eligible activities involving construction and/or acquisition of real property, applicants should refer to the construction and real property acquisition funding opportunity announcement. Trust Fund amounts are available to carry out eligible activities described in the RESTORE Act. These are: 1. Restoration and protection of the natural resources, ecosystems, fisheries, marine and wildlife habitats, beaches and coastal wetlands of the Gulf Coast region. 2. Mitigation of damage to fish, wildlife and natural resources. 3. Implementation of a federally approved marine, coastal, or comprehensive conservation management plan, including fisheries monitoring. 4. Workforce development and job creation. 5. Improvements to or on State parks located in coastal areas affected by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. 6. Infrastructure projects benefitting the economy or ecological resources, including port infrastructure. 7. Coastal flood protection and related infrastructure. 8. Planning assistance. 9. Administrative costs. 10. Promotion of tourism in the Gulf Coast region, including recreational fishing. 11. Promotion of the consumption of seafood harvested from the Gulf Coast region.

Notice of Intent to issue Funding Opportunity Announcement DE-FOA-0002804 “Industrial Efficiency and Decarbonization FOA”. $2.00

The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) intends to issue, on behalf of the Advanced Manufacturing Office, a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) entitled “Industrial Efficiency and Decarbonization FOA”. The Biden Administration has laid out a bold agenda to address the climate crisis and build a clean and equitable energy economy that achieves carbon pollution free electricity by 2035, and puts the United States on a path to achieve net-zero emissions, economy-wide, by no later than 2050 to the benefit of all Americans. The Advanced Manufacturing Office (AMO) plays a leading role in decarbonizing and revitalizing the industrial sector. It addresses the climate crisis by driving the innovation and deployment that can lead to a more resilient, robust, and competitive domestic clean energy manufacturing sector that provides economic opportunities across diverse communities. Manufacturing can deliver the technologies needed to decarbonize other sectors of the economy, including transportation, buildings, and the electric grid. AMO accomplishes its goals by supporting applied research, development, and demonstration (RD&D) in crosscutting, platform technologies to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and promote the development and growth of advanced manufacturing in multiple emerging energy fields. Significant decarbonization of the manufacturing sector is essential to achieving the overall goal of economy-wide decarbonization by 2050 and creating good paying jobs. The RD&D activities anticipated to be funded under this FOA would support the government-wide approach to the climate crisis by driving the innovation that can lead to the deployment of clean energy technologies, which are critical for climate protection. Specifically, this anticipated FOA would fund high-impact, applied research and development and prototype or pilot-scale demonstration projects in order to expedite the industrialization of transformational technology necessary to reduce energy usage and GHG emissions from high GHG-emitting industrial subsectors, along with cross-cutting industrial decarbonization approaches, via opportunities in energy efficiency; industrial electrification; low carbon fuels, feedstocks and energy sources; and industrial carbon capture and utilization. This anticipated FOA and its associated projects are separate from any forthcoming efforts to be funded under provisions of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, including activities related to Industrial Emissions Demonstration Projects.
