EPA Announces $100 Million for Environmental Justice Grants 

On January 10, 2023, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced a record $100 million in funding through the Inflation Reduction Act for projects that advance environmental justice in underserved and overburdened communities across the U.S. EPA Administrator Michael Regan said, “I couldn’t be prouder to now be announcing an unprecedented level of funding thanks to President Biden’s Inflation Reduction Act for community-based solutions that support underserved and overburdened communities. This is a key step that will help build strong partnerships with communities across the country and move us closer to realizing a more just and equitable future for all.” 

Requests for applications for this funding through the Environmental Justice Collaborative Problem-Solving (EJCPS) and the Cooperative Agreement Program and the Environmental Justice Government-to-Government (EJG2G) Program are available on the EPA website.
