EPA Grants

Guidance on lobbying restrictions

The purpose of this guidance is to remind nonprofit organizations, universities, and other non-government recipients of EPA grants that, with very limited exceptions, you may not use federal grant funds or cost-sharing funds to conduct lobbying activities.

The restrictions on lobbying are explained in 40 CFR, Part 34. As a recipient of EPA funds, you must be aware of and comply with these restrictions.
