New Hampshire is calling for proposals for federal stimulus-financed strategic communications efforts focused on energy conservation and renewable energy adoption.
The Granite State issued an RFP on Jan. 26 for a pitch process that includes two phases – the first, a short-term grant structure with a deadline of March 30 and the second, a big-budget strategic plan due by June 9.
The second phase has a budget of $250,000 and could be doled out in increments as small as $10,000 or as large as $200,000 to fund efforts through April 2012. The first phase, to be executed this year, is capped at $50K.
Companies, non-profits and education institutions are eligible to pitch for the public education funds.
Activities deemed “acceptable” for the work include speaking tours, classroom activities for students, PR (no lobbying), video production or other outreach.
