General EPA Grants Information
We recommend that you first visit the website at www.grants.gov/ to search for federal government-wide grant opportunities for which you are eligible. Once you have located an environmentally-related grant opportunity, you may begin the application process. Be sure to make a note of the Funding Opportunity and/or Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) number.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency awards financial assistance to eligible organizations for specific environmental projects or purposes. The Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (see “Links to Other Related Information” on our web page) provides detailed information regarding EPA grant programs, including eligibility requirements, types of projects to be funded, available grant amounts, etc. If you meet the criteria for an EPA assistance program and wish to apply for a grant, you must fill out an application and forward it to the appropriate EPA office. Your application will be evaluated, and if it meets EPA standards, a grant may be awarded to your organization to fund the project.
EPA grant funds are available under two broad categories:
Continuing Program Grants are baseline grant programs awarded primarily to state, local and tribal governments. These grants are available under specific statutes (such as Clean Air Act Section 105, Clean Water Act Section 106, Resource Conservation and Recovery Act Section 3011) or under a combination of these programs into a Performance Partnership Grant. The purpose of these grants is to help support ongoing state and tribal environmental programs, such as air, water, and waste.
Project Grants are available to a broader range of recipients for a wide spectrum of Agency priorities such as pollution prevention, watershed planning, environmental justice, and environmental education. These project grants change from year to year and some of them are managed by EPA HQ in Washington, DC.
The Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance is a government-wide compendium of financial and nonfinancial assistance programs administered by the Federal government.
For a complete listing of the grant programs administered by EPA, please access the CFDA website at: http://www.cfda.gov
