Wind Powering America State Outreach: A link to the full Funding Opportunity Announcement is found by scrolling to the bottom of this page. This is a restricted eligibility ; the goal of the WPA is to continue to provide small awards to State Energy Offices (SEO). State recipients will continue to focus on state level technical assistance and outreach initiatives to stimulate wind development by helping to remove market barriers, improve the knowledge of modern wind systems and benefits to the numerous stakeholder groups. Due to limited funding availability, WPA has been forced to identify and prioritize states that offer the greatest opportunity for return on limited funding resources to stimulate wind development. The following 22 states/U.S. territories have been targeted as priority WPA states based on programmatic criteria: Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Kansas, Maine, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico, Tennessee, U.S. Virgin Islands, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) implements the 2008 Wind Powering America Program (WPA). WPA is the deployment arm of EERE's Wind Program. Since 2002, WPA has supported state wind development throughout the U.S., focusing on state and community level outreach, specific agriculture outreach, formation of wind working groups (WWGs), and other initiatives to stimulate wind and rural economic development. Each year, WPA reviews the status of wind development to prioritize financial support to those states in most need and with the greatest development potential. The Program expects to award up to twenty-two grants supporting targeted states that have adequate wind resources, yet are struggling with little installed capacity, inadequate wind development policies, and developing WWG's and advocacy groups.
