USDA New ERA: Next Steps & Application Tips

December 12, 2023 | 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Join NRTC, ENGIE, and the USDA for a webinar focused on helping rural electric cooperatives prepare to receive decisions from the USDA on Empowering Rural America (New ERA) program letters of interest. Once the short-listed applicants are announced, the window of time for submitting an application is expected to be brief (60 days). This webinar will cover timelines, next steps, and have valuable tips for cooperatives based on whether or not they receive an invitation to apply.

Webinar Topics:

  • New ERA application requirements and timeline
  • Resource-intensive and time-sensitive application items to prepare for now
  • Options for projects that do not receive an invitation
  • Audience questions and answers


  • Madeleine Klein, Managing Director, Policy & Market Strategy – ENGIE
  • Chris McCarthy, Advisor, Distributed Solar & Storage – ENGIE
  • Milton Geiger, Vice President, Smart Grid Solutions – NRTC
  • New ERA Program Administrator – USDA
