On Wednesday, January 18, 2023, EPN submitted comments in response to the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) request for information on Climate Pollution Reduction grants. We recommend that planning grants should maximize a cooperative federalism approach to climate change and be made available to all states and Tribes ready and willing to work toward shared climate goals. Regarding allocating implementation grants, EPA should look first where the need is greatest and pursue the largest climate and environmental justice benefits. EPA should develop and maintain a new state greenhouse gas emission tracking system and use the $142.5 million available to fund their essential administrative responsibilities in carrying out the program.
EPN is pleased to offer our ongoing support in any way that our volunteers can be of help to EPA and stakeholders in meeting the goals of the program.
