EPA Smart Growth Grants and Other Funding

On this page

The Office of Sustainable Communities occasionally offers grants to support activities that improve the quality of development and protect human health and the environment. If you see a grant for which you wish to apply:

  • Read the Request for Proposals (RFP) carefully to determine what activities or projects are eligible.
  • If you are not familiar with the EPA's smart growth program, review our Web pages to learn about what we do.
  • Submit your proposal according to the instructions in the RFP.


  • You can set up an email alert on Grants.gov to be notified automatically when a grant featuring a search term, such as "smart growth," is posted.
  • See EPA's web page on Understanding, Managing, and Applying for EPA Grants for helpful tips on writing a grant proposal and policies and regulations covering grants.
  • We accept grant proposals only for open solicitations.
