The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) presented four webinars in March to learn more about two new grant opportunities (see below online link) to advance environmental justice in underserved communities. These grants are made possible by President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and are a critical component of the Biden-Harris Administration’s Justice40 Initiative, which aims to deliver 40% of the overall benefits of climate, clean energy and other investments to disadvantaged communities.
Individual grant awards may range from $100,000 to $800,000 for the funding period or up to $1.2 million for multi-state or multi-Tribal projects.
Tools and resources for prospective grantees, including pre-recorded webinars, writing guidance, networking tools, and helpful templates, can be found online.
