Governor Mark Gordon relaunched the Energy Rebound Program (ERP) with $12 million in leftover CARES Act funding to help get more people working in the energy sector in Wyoming. In 2020, ERP provided much-needed assistance for specified oil and gas projects and will continue to provide economic benefits to this important industry, workforce, and the entire state of Wyoming.
The Wyoming Oil and Gas Conservation Commission will administer the program and is accepting applications from June 15 to June 25. Once again, there is a cap of $500,000 for each approved project, and oil and gas operators will need to certify the number of jobs created for Wyoming workers.
