Summary: EPA’s Office of Air Quality Planning & Standards is soliciting applications from eligible entities to compete for financial assistance through the Targeted Airshed Grant Program. This program will assist local, state, and/or tribal air pollution control agencies to develop plans and conduct projects to reduce air pollution in nonattainment areas that EPA determines are the top five most polluted areas relative to ozone, annual average fine particulate matter (PM2.5), or 24-hour PM2.5 National Ambient Air Quality Standards. The overall goal of the Targeted Airshed Grant Program is to reduce air pollution in the nation’s areas with the highest levels of ozone and PM2.5 ambient air concentrations. The total estimated funding for this competitive opportunity is approximately $106,512,000. EPA anticipates awarding approximately 8 – 15 assistance agreements from this announcement, subject to availability of funds, the quality of applications received and other applicable considerations.
