CalSHAPE Updates:

As a reminder, the Funding Round Five application deadline is 5:00 p.m. on May 31, 2024. Additionally, the CEC is not currently able to execute grant agreements after June 1, 2024, due to the final program reporting deadline of June 1, 2026, and the two-year project term provided for all grant projects, as described in the guidelines. Please make every effort to submit complete and accurate applications well in advance of the May 31st deadline and submit notice of proposed award documents as soon as the application is approved to ensure a grant agreement is able to be executed prior to the deadline.

Notices of Funding Availability are posted under the expandable menus for each program. The notices provide the relevant funding round information, including eligibility, the application process, and available funding amounts. The CalSHAPE Ventilation Program will now be accepting applications for both the Assessment and Maintenance and Upgrade and Repair (U&R) Grants. 

Applications for all programs are submitted electronically using the CalSHAPE Online System. An access link, instructions, and a video training can be found under the “Online System” expandable menu.

The California Energy Commission was authorized by Assembly Bill (AB) 841 (Chapter 372, Statutes of 2020) to design, administer, and implement the California Schools Healthy Air, Plumbing, and Efficiency Program (CalSHAPE). CalSHAPE includes two grant programs, CalSHAPE Plumbing and CalSHAPE Ventilation, for eligible parties within the service territories of the large electric and natural gas utilities in California.

The CalSHAPE Ventilation Program provides funding to local educational agencies for the reasonable costs of HVAC assessment, general maintenance and adjustment, filter replacement, and carbon dioxide monitor installation including certain repairs, replacements and other improvements to HVAC systems.
