EPA “Climate Showcase Communities” grants program
For the second year in a row, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) is making funds available through competitive grant program designed to assist local and tribal governments in establishing and implementing climate change initiatives. The overall goal of the Climate Showcase Communities grant program is to create replicable models of sustainable community action that generate cost-effective and persistent greenhouse gas reductions while improving the environmental, economic, public health, or social conditions in a community. The U.S. EPA expects to award approximately 25 cooperative agreements ranging from approximately $100,000 to $500,000. Approximately 5 percent of the total available funds ($500,000) are set aside for tribal governments.
Proposals are due by July 26, 2010, 4:00 p.m. EDT.
