EJ Collaborative Problem-Solving Cooperative Agreements Program
Grants & Programs Topics
The Environmental Justice Collaborative Problem-Solving (CPS) Cooperative Agreement Program provides funding for eligible applicants for projects that address local environmental and public health issues within an affected community. The CPS Program is designed to help communities understand and address exposure to multiple environmental harms and risks.
The CPS Program requires selected applicants, or recipients, to use the EPA’s Environmental Justice Collaborative Problem-Solving Model (PDF) (44 pp, 1.5MB) as part of their projects. The model aims to address local environmental and/or public health issues in a collaborative manner with various stakeholders such as communities, industry, academic institutions, and others. Case Studies from the Environmental Justice Collaborative Problem-Solving Program (PDF) (29 pp, 3.6M) highlights some of the success and effective strategies of previous projects.
