Environmental Protection Agency: Environmental Justice Small Grants ProgramDeadline: February 15, 2019
The Environmental Justice Small Grants (EJSG) program awards grants that support community-driven projects designed to engage, educate, and empower communities to better understand local environmental and public health issues and develop strategies for addressing those issues, building consensus in the community and setting community priorities. Given projected increases in extreme weather events and the vulnerability of underserved populations, this opportunity will emphasize projects that address emergency preparedness and increase resiliency, as well as projects that include the needs of U.S. military veterans and homeless populations.
Amount: Approximately $1,500,000 will be available nationwide to make an estimated 50 grants (five per Environmental Protection Agency region) of up to $30,000 each. These grants are for one-year projects.
Eligibility: Eligible entities inclue:
- Incorporated non-profit organizations including, but not limited to, environmental justice networks, faith based organizations, and those affiliated with religious institutions
- Federally recognized tribal governments including Alaska Native Villages
