Potential Wood Smoke Funding: EPA Environmental Justice Small Grants Program
Application Due: February 29, 2012
Eligible Entities: Federally recognized tribes, tribal organizations, and incorporated non-profit organizations.
EPA’s Environmental Justice Small Grants Program (EJSG) provides funding for projects that address local environmental and public health issues within an affected community. EPA will award grants that support activities designed to educate, empower, and enable communities to understand environmental and public health issues and to identify ways to address these issues at the local level. The long-term goals of the EJSG program are to help build the capacity of communities with environmental justice concerns and create self-sustaining, community-based partnerships that will continue to improve local environments in the future. Eligible applicants must demonstrate that they have worked directly with the affected community.
