I’m interested in energy efficiency upgrades for My Nonprofit

Nonprofit Energy Efficiency Program

The Nonprofit Energy Efficiency Program (NEEP) helps nonprofits that serve income-qualified Coloradans across the state in upgrading their facilities to increase energy efficiency and lower operating costs. EOC staff help conduct an energy assessment and supply grant funding to offset the purchase and installation of new equipment, including efficient lighting, insulation, low-flow fixtures, and HVAC systems. Nonprofits of all types, including youth centers, crisis shelters, food pantries, and clinics have all benefited from NEEP.

The Program is open to nonprofits that:

  • Serve income-qualified Coloradans, including religious institutions that provide direct services regularly
  • Own their building or in a long-term lease*
  • Pay their energy costs
  • Are classified as 501(c)3 and are in good standing with the state of Colorado

*Please Note: Organizations with long-term leases must have a minimum of 3 years remaining, the option to renew, and a letter showing owner support. Nonprofits leasing government-owned buildings may qualify on a limited basis.
