Thank you to all of the teams and individuals that submitted one of the many entries into the Energizing Rural Communities Prize! We had an overwhelming response from communities interested in supporting their local clean energy transition, and we are excited to work with many of you going forward. 


Please congratulate the 67 winning teams, listed on HeroX and on American-Made Challenges


We enjoyed reading your proposals and learning about your vision for your communities. It has been an honor for all of us to get to know you through the information you shared. If you were selected as a winner, you will soon receive an email from the email address with some next steps to receive your payment and to engage with the team going forward. 


For those of you who were not selected, you will still receive reviewer feedback with guidance on how to improve submissions going forward. In either case, we encourage you to continue applying for funding opportunities to make your vision a reality. 


Thank you again, and we look forward to working with many of you!
