EPA providing $4.6 billion for pollution reduction projects

October 10, 2023

The EPA will award $4.6 billion to programs and policies that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and implement clean-energy initiatives. Earlier this year, the agency awarded a total of $250 million to multiple states, metropolitan areas, tribes and territories to develop plans to reduce pollution. The latest round of funding will go toward implementing those plans.

All but four states applied for and will receive planning grants. As of early October, 78 metropolitan statistical areas and 94 tribes and territories received grants.

General implementation grants will range between $2 million and $500 million. Tribes and territories will be eligible for grants of $1 million to $25 million.

The grants are available through the Climate Pollution Reduction Grants (CPRG) program. The program allows recipients to create clean-energy programs specific to their individual needs, resources and delivery capacity. Additionally, all applicants are required to demonstrate how their plans will reduce climate pollution in disadvantaged communities.

Applications are due by April 1, 2024, with informal notices to apply due Feb. 1. Tribes and territories have until May 1, 2024, to apply. Informal notices to apply will be due March 1, 2024.
