Funding Opportunities

The U.S. and Missouri funding opportunities and incentives listed and linked below are for financial incentives that promote renewable energy and energy efficiency – those designed primarily for businesses rather than funding opportunities for research and development, outreach, or inter-governmental programs.

For more information on research, development, and demonstration funding opportunities available from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, visit its website.

New federal and state programs and incentives will be added as they become available. If there are other energy-related grants, loans, tax incentives or other financial opportunities that we should include here, please email us.

Tax Incentives

Missouri Certified Home Energy Audits — Beginning Jan. 1, 2009, any taxpayer who paid an individual certified by the Department of Economic Development to complete a home energy audit may deduct 100 percent of the costs incurred for the audit and the implementation of any energy efficiency recommendations made by the auditor. The maximum yearly subtraction may not exceed $1,000, for a single taxpayer or a married couple filing a combined return. For all years in which you incur expenses, the maximum total subtraction you may claim is $2,000.To qualify for the deduction, you must have incurred expenses in the year you are filing a claim, and the expenses incurred must not have been excluded from your federal adjusted gross income or reimbursed through any other state or federal program. Unless extended, the tax deduction expires Dec. 31, 2013.
