Environmental Justice Small Grants Program
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
Due: March 31, 2011
Since its inception in 1994, the Environmental Justice Small Grants Program has awarded more than $21 million in
funding to 1,200 community-based organizations, and local and tribal organizations working with communities facing
environmental justice issues.
The Environmental Justice Small Grants Program, supports and empowers communities working on solutions to local
environmental and public health issues. The program assists recipients in building collaborative partnerships to
help them understand and address environmental and public health issues in their communities. Successful collaborative
partnerships involve not only well-designed strategic plans to build, maintain and sustain the partnerships,
but also working towards addressing the local environmental and public health issues.
The EPA is now accepting grant applications for $1.2 million in funding to support projects designed to research,
educate, empower and enable communities to understand and address local environmental and public health issues.
Environmental Justice Small Grants funding is available for two categories of projects:
40 grants of up to $25,000 each—to support projects that address a community’s local environmental issues
through collaborative partnerships, and;
4 grants of up to $50,000 each—to support research on the environmental and human health impacts of exposure
to multiple sources of pollution in communities.
