EPA recently announced $100 million for environmental justice grants—the largest amount ever offered by EPA—to help underserved and overburdened communities. Applications are due April 14, 2023.
EPA has published two Requests for Applications for this funding through the Environmental Justice Collaborative Problem-Solving Cooperative Agreement Program (EJCPS) and the Environmental Justice Government-to-Government Program (EJG2G).
To help applicants, EPN has created a suggested 5-step application process—including a suggested timeline—for each of these opportunities:
Suggested 5-Step EJCPS Application Process
Suggested 5-Step EJG2G Application Process
Special thanks to the Anthropocene Alliance (A2), CommunityAQ, and OpenGrants for creating many of these resources, which also include links to publicly available tools, webinars, information and instructions from EPA’s Office of Environmental Justice and External Civil Rights.
