Sponsorship Program

EGLE will extend funding to continue offering support for event sponsorships and other training activities that provide Michigan businesses, communities, and citizens with information to make informed decarbonization decisions. Any Michigan-based organization is eligible to apply. The primary focus of the event must be related to energy efficiency, renewable energy, and/or sustainability. Sponsored events must share event materials (e.g., marketing information, summaries, presentations, links, etc.) with EGLE to publish publicly. Grant funding will be available between January 2023 through May 2023.
