RICHMOND, Va. – The Commonwealth of Virginia selected TFG to provide federal funding and grant support services to all Virginia agencies, institutions of higher education, and public bodies to further clean energy, environmental, economic development, infrastructure, and other policy goals. TFG is teaming up with Sustainable Energy Advantage, a firm that has helped entities navigate policy and develop clean energy solutions for twenty-five years.
“This partnership signifies our shared commitment to maximize Virginia’s access to federal funding and advance the state’s clean energy solutions along with other public investment priorities,” said Roger Gwinn, TFG CEO. “By eliminating barriers and expediting the funding process, we aim to empower Virginia's public entities to drive positive change in energy, environment, and economic development. TFG remains steadfast in our mission to help build resilient and thriving communities by harnessing the power of federal funding and strategic advocacy.”
“We’re eager to collaborate with Sustainable Energy Advantage to serve Virginia,” said Trace Roller, TFG Manager of Grants Strategic Development. “Our mission is clear: streamline access to federal funds for entities across the state. Through strategic coordination, stakeholder engagement, and a focus on key funding opportunities, we are committed to delivering tangible results that propel Virginia towards a sustainable, resilient future.”
“On the heels of successful facilitation of stakeholder engagement on behalf of the State Corporation Commission regarding a potential shared solar program for electric customers in Southwest Virginia, we are thrilled to join forces with TFG to continue enabling the Commonwealth of Virginia’s efforts to implement sustainable energy solutions. This collaboration underscores our commitment to facilitating a greener, more resilient future,” said Bob Grace, SEA Managing Director and President. “We aim to help Virginia successfully leverage available funds and industry best practices to implement programs and activities aligning with the Commonwealth’s energy, environmental, and economic development goals.”
This partnership designates TFG and Sustainable Energy Advantage as approved suppliers of federal funding support services. Public entities throughout Virginia can directly access expert assistance to secure funding for clean energy, environmental, economic development, infrastructure, and other policy projects without going through the Request for Proposal process—maximizing project competitiveness and access to federal funds.
With a particular focus on funding opportunities like the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and the Inflation Reduction Act, TFG will:
- Identify and support clean energy funding proposal development;
- Coordinate among Virginia agency partners;
- Engage relevant stakeholders;
- Provide research services;
- Manage data collection and data analysis;
