The U.S. Department of Commerce’s Economic Development Administration (EDA) is awarding a $648,339 grant to the Oneida Nation in Oneida to develop a strategic energy transition plan to develop a Tribal Utility Authority and explore the potential for a utility-scale solar facility and electric vehicle for tribal operations. This grant is funded by the American Rescue Plan.

This grant would support the hiring of staff and a contractor for four years to complete and implement the plan.
