PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- The Obama administration says about $35 million in federal money is being set aside for projects in Oregon that reduce fossil fuel emissions and energy use.

The federal stimulus money is part of the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant program, which is expected to invest $3.2 billion nationwide.

In a release, the government said about $33.5 million is to be divided among the state, 14 cities and 10 counties. More than $1 million will finance projects for Oregon tribes.

The money is in addition to $80.6 million announced earlier this month for state weatherization and energy projects.
