Federal funding for energy efficiency improvements - Breakdown of dollars by state

On March 26, the Obama Administration announced $3.2 billion in funding for energy efficiency projects at state and local levels.

According to the official press release, the funding will "support energy audits [all emphasis is mine] and energy efficiency retrofits in residential and commercial buildings, the development and implementation of advanced building codes and inspections, and the creation of financial incentive programs for energy efficiency improvements. Other activities eligible for use of grant funds include transportation programs that conserve energy, projects to reduce and capture methane and other greenhouse gas emissions from landfills, renewable energy installations on government buildings, energy efficient traffic signals and street lights, deployment of Combined Heat and Power and district heating and cooling systems, and others."
