Eligible applicants include States, territories, Tribal governments, and local governments in partnership with a community-based nonprofit organization.
This program specifically aims to achieve measurable and meaningful environmental and/or public health results in communities. Consider using it to coordinate between governments to build toward common climate goals and reduce redundant or conflicting efforts.
This program specifically aims to (1) build broad and robust, results-oriented partnerships, particularly with community-based nonprofit organizations (CBO) within disproportionately impacted areas; (2) pilot activities in specific communities that create transferable models, which can be expanded or replicated in other geographic areas, and; (3) strengthen the development and implementation of meaningful approaches to achieve environmental justice.
