Illinois to Receive Money from Federal Government for Energy Efficiency and Cleanup Measures

On April 22nd, the Chicago Tribune published two stories concerning cash from the federal government going to environmental improvements within the State of Illinois.

The first story reported that “the U.S. Department of Energy awarded $25 million to the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning. It’ll put the money into a program called the Chicago Region Retrofit Ramp-up Program, which aims to retrofit both commercial and residential buildings.  Plans include setting up a one-stop-shop info center where building owners can arrange and finance the energy efficiency projects.”

The second story reported that Illinois communities, including Rock Island, Vermilion County, Rockford, North Chicago, Franklin Park, Lena and Vandalia, are to receive $2.65 million in grants from the Environmental Protection Agency to clean contaminated waste sites in the state.
