Green building funding

Question: I want to find funding for my personal green building project. Where should I look?

Answer: Depending on the intended use of the building and the status of the builder, there may be different types of funds available.

The EPA has a fairly comprehensive database of funding opportunities. They list websites that would be useful to consumers, government, non-profit organizations, and other industry. The site is organized by general, national, state, and local funding programs.

The U.S. Small Business Administration has additional resources for small business funding, as well as information on the different types of financial assistance available.

If you’re looking for non-profit funding, the Foundation Center has resources and online training available. If you happen to be in Juneau, our downtown Juneau Public Library is a participating library and has access to additional resources. You can find a list of other participating libraries at
