Competitive Grants

The Iowa Energy Center Grant program is funded by gas and electric utilities across the state of Iowa and is administered by the Iowa Economic Development Authority. The IEC is currently accepting pre-applications for informational purposes. Because the goals of the Iowa Energy Center are closely tied to the goals of the Iowa Energy Plan, the pre-applications must align with one of the seven focus areas of the Iowa Energy Plan:

  • Energy Workforce Development
  • Technology-based Energy Research and Development
  • Support for Rural and Underserved Areas
  • Biomass Conversion
  • Natural Gas Expansion in Underserved Areas
  • Electric Grid Modernization
  • Alternative Fuel Vehicles 

Moneys appropriated to the center shall be used to sponsor grants and projects submitted on a competitive basis by Iowa businesses, colleges and universities, and private nonprofit agencies and foundations.
