Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant Program. The Oglala Sioux Tribe of South Dakota proposes to sponsor an outreach initiative to address the need to increase the rate and total number of low-income residential energy retrofits. The Tribe proposes to target mobile homes manufactured prior to 1976. The Tribe would assist Tribal members with acquisition, preparation, and submission of South Dakota Weatherization Assistance Program enrollment applications, provide an energy efficiency and conservation coordinator for the nine districts that make up the reservation, and will work closely with the Western South Dakota Community Action organization, the South Dakota sub-grantee responsible for coordinating weatherization services on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.
