Climate Pollution Reduction Grants
The Climate Pollution Reduction Grants (CPRG) program provides $5 billion in grants to states, local governments, tribes, and territories to develop and implement ambitious plans for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and other harmful air pollution. Authorized under Section 60114 of the Inflation Reduction Act, this two-phase program provides $250 million for noncompetitive planning grants, and approximately $4.6 billion for competitive implementation grants.
The CPRG Planning Grants first deliverable, the Priority Climate Action Plan (PCAP), is due March 1, 2024 for States and MSAs and April 1, 2024 for Tribes and Territories. See the CPRG Planning Grant Priority Climate Action Plans (PCAPs).
