National Pollution Prevention Information Network (PPIN)
This grant competition started in 1997 to promote sharing of P2 information, training and technical assistance expertise among states. Regional Centers receiving these grants call themselves the Pollution Prevention Resource Exchange (P2RX).
Other EPA grants, from the Water, Air or Waste programs, can also be used to support P2 programs. For a primarily regional list of available EPA funding and project grants, visit Region 9 Funding Sources for Communities. More national grants are also available.
