Cincinnati - The Department of Energy (DOE) today awarded a $3.1 million, five-year cooperative agreement to the Energy Communities Alliance (ECA), of Washington, D.C. to continue collaborate efforts between DOE and local governments to solve challenges posed by the Office of Environmental Management’s nuclear waste management, changing DOE missions and ongoing cleanup at DOE sites.

The purpose of the cooperative agreement with ECA is to continue activities that are intended to assist in the participation of local officials in the decision-making process regarding DOE cleanup activities.
