EPA Announces Grant Opportunity for Pollution Prevention
San Francisco – The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is seeking grant applications from states and federally-recognized tribes to promote pollution prevention (P2) in businesses across the country. Through these grants, the agency hopes states and tribes, along with colleges, universities and intertribal consortia, will develop and provide information,
training, and tools to businesses to help them reduce costs and the use of water, energy and other natural resources.
“Pollution prevention grants are important tools that help support
innovative solutions to reducing pollution,” said EPA Office of Chemical
Safety and Pollution Prevention Assistant Administrator Alexandra
Dapolito Dunn. “The results of work done under these grants have
created best practices that are helping to advance economic growth, increase sustainability and protect the environment.”
EPA anticipates awarding approximately $9.38 million in total federal
pollution prevention grant funding over a two-year funding cycle
($4.69 million in FY 2020 funds and $4.69 million in FY 2021 funds).
Individual grant awards could be in the range of $40,000-$500,000 for the two-year funding period or between $20,000 – $250,000 funded per year.
