EPA-Pollution Prevention Program Funded by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. Deadline - 4/11/22
FY 2022 - FY 2023 Pollution Prevention Grant Program Funded by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law
EPA is announcing a grant competition to fund two-year Pollution Prevention assistance agreements for projects that provide technical assistance (e.g., information, training, tools) to businesses to help them develop and adopt source reduction practices (also known as “pollution prevention” or “P2”). P2 means reducing or eliminating pollutants from entering any waste stream or otherwise being released into the environment prior to recycling, treatment, or disposal. In keeping with the Pollution Prevention Act of 1990, EPA is encouraging P2 because implementing these practices can result in reductions in pollutants, and the use of water, energy, and other raw materials, while also lowering business costs. States, state entities, the District of Columbia, the U.S. Virgin Islands, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, any territory or possession of the U.S., federally-recognized tribes and intertribal consortia are eligible to apply.
EPA will award grants and/or cooperative agreements to the fifty states, the District of Columbia, the U.S. Virgin Islands, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, any territory or possession of the U.S., any agency or instrumentality of a state, including colleges and universities of states, federally-recognized Indian tribes that meet the requirements as described in 40 CFR 35.663, and Intertribal Consortia that meet the requirements in 40 CFR 35.504.8 Colleges and universities must be chartered, commissioned or publicly-owned/operated by the state or the federally-recognized tribe in order to be eligible. Colleges and universities must include documentation within their applications, which may include, but is not limited to a: state constitutional reference, college/university charter, W-7 tax form that has confirmed the college or university to serve as an instrumentality of a state or a federally-recognized tribe. Note: Local governments, private universities, for-profit organizations, non-profit organizations, private businesses, and individuals are not eligible to apply for funding under this announcement.
