Indiana Resilience Funding Hub

Connecting Hoosier communities to funding for climate, energy, and resilience

The Indiana Resilience Funding Hub (IRFH), jointly administered by ERI and the IU Center for Rural Engagement, helps Hoosier communities pursue federal funding opportunities for climate, energy, and resilience projects.

The Hub, made possible by the Rural Climate Partnership and the Energy Foundation, is targeted at communities with fewer than 50,000 residents that lack the capacity to compete for grant funding on their own. IRFH will provide these communities with technical assistance and state-specific environmental expertise in the preparation and submission of competitive grant applications.

The Hub aims to:

  • guide smaller communities through an environmental needs assessment,

  • provide data and solutions management,

  • and support proposal development.

Local government staff and community leaders who are interested in learning more about IRFH are encouraged to start a conversation with the IRFH team.
