FY 2021 REGION 10 HEALTHY, RESILIENT, AND SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITIES GRANT PROGRAM
ORGANIZATION NAME Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
AGENCY OR GRANT #EPA-R10-HRSC-2021
DESCRIPTION The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Region 10 (EPA), is issuing a Request for Applications (RFA) from eligible entities to improve community health, resilience, and/or sustainability through pollution prevention and/or sustainable materials management implementation. Pollution prevention (P2) is any practice that reduces the amount of any hazardous substance, pollutant, or contaminant entering any waste stream or otherwise released into the environment (including fugitive emissions); prior to recycling, treatment or disposal. Pollution prevention reduces the hazards to public health and the environment associated with the release of such substances, pollutants or contaminants. Sustainable materials management (SMM) is a systemic approach to using and reusing materials more productively over their entire life cycles. It represents a change in how our society thinks about the use of natural resources and environmental protection. By looking at a product's entire life cycle, we can find new opportunities to reduce environmental impacts, conserve resources, and reduce costs.
Eligible entities include Region 10 states, local governments, city or township governments, independent school district governments, state-controlled institutions of higher education, non-profit organizations (other than institutions of higher education), nonprofit private institutions of higher education, community-based grassroots organizations, and federally recognized tribes and intertribal consortia. Eligible projects must take place within EPA Region 10, which includes Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington.
