Environmental Justice Grants now available to the public
BOSTON Applications are currently being accepted for "Environmental Justice Small Grants" to support projects that address local environmental and public health issues within affected communities. EPA's New England regional office expects to award four grants of $20,000.
The Environmental Justice Small Grants Program is designed to help communities understand and address their exposure to multiple environmental harms and risks. The long-term goals of the grant program are to help build the capacity of an affected community and create self-sustaining, community-based partnerships that will continue to improve local environmental in the future.
