The West Virginia Division of Energy is accepting applications for the Local Energy Efficiency Grant Program.

The program is designed to provide grant funds to local government units with community projects assisting business owners and homeowners to become more energy efficient.

According to a West Virginia Department of Commerce news release, applicants will be limited to county commissions and municipalities with projects to benefit county businesses and residents.

The West Virginia Division of Energy anticipates awarding five grants with funds up to $10,000.  

A local match of 20 percent of the grant amount will be required.

Applications are due Nov. 30. People may find applications at http://www.wvcommerce.org/energy/energy_efficiency/leegp.aspx
