U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) – Environmental Justice Program

EPA is working to improve the environment and public health conditions of low-income and minority communities through its efforts to ensure all Americans have clean air, safe water, and access to information to make decisions to protect personal and public health. As part of these efforts, EPA has re-opened the State Environmental Justice Cooperative Agreement Program (SEJCA) and is giving special consideration to those applications aimed at addressing the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on urban and rural low income and minority communities.

Eligibility: States, U.S. territories, or commonwealths; an instrumentality of the state (i.e. government-created organization which performs governmental functions but does not have the full power of the state government); federally recognized tribal governments; and local governments including cities, towns, municipalities, and counties.

Amount: $1,000,000 is available for five awards of $200,000 each.

Deadline: June 30, 2020.
