2024 Grant Recipients: Feeding Northeast Florida, The NEED Project
The Charitable Foundation of the Energy Bar Association (CFEBA) has selected Feeding Northeast Florida as the 2024 Cornerstone Grant Recipient, awarding the organization $50,000 to support the installation of solar electric infrastructure designed to reduce food bank utility costs and provide resiliency in the face of natural disasters.
The CFEBA also announced a smaller $10,000 grant to the National Energy Education Development Project (NEED). The NEED Project works with energy companies, state and federal agencies, and other organizations to produce energy programs for U.S. schools. As part of NEED Project curricula, students learn how to design buildings to maximize energy efficiency, install solar panels, monitor wind turbine output, learn about oil and gas exploration in shale, explore transportation technologies, and more.. NEED students are the future of the energy workforce and the CFEBA is excited to support its education and workforce development efforts.
