Project Information

Background information:
The Department of Energy Resources Community Clean Energy Resiliency Initiative is focused on protecting communities from the effects of climate change.


The Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources (DOER) is seeking an evaluation of the application process of the Community Clean Energy Resiliency Initiative with the goal of identifying program inefficiencies and proposing improvements.
The overall goal of this project is to evaluate the grant application process within the Community Clean Energy Resiliency Initiative and provide recommendations for future grant programs within the DOER.


Our research objectives to complete this goal will be:
i. Design an evaluation procedure for the grant application process.
ii. Apply the evaluation procedure in the collection of feedback from awarded grant applicants.


The team will be working with the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources, located on 100 Cambridge Street, Boston, MA.

Expected Results:
The team expects to receive feedback from each individual who completes the survey, as well as phone interviews, so recommendations can be provided.
