ExxonMobil Awards $4M in Green Grants

11/05/2009
IRVING, Texas -- Exxon Mobil Corp. and the National Communication Action Foundation (NCAF) teamed up to award $4 million in grants to improve energy efficiency for low-income houses, UPI.com reported.

ExxonMobil and the NCAF, through a weatherization training partnership program, awarded the grants to nine U.S. communities to improve energy efficiency. A board selected proposals from communities from Virginia to Oregon based on their ability to train workers in the weatherization of low-income homes under guidelines outlined in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, according to the report.

"ExxonMobil is committed to improving energy efficiency in our own operations and around the world, and [these] grants will extend that commitment to communities in America," said Sherman Glass, president of ExxonMobil Refining and Supply Co.

The grants vary from $300,000 to nearly $1 million, ExxonMobil stated.
