The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Climate Pollution Reduction Grants (CPRG) program provides states, local governments, and tribal nations flexible resources to plan for and pursue ambitious greenhouse gas (GHG) pollution reductions to achieve three broad objectives:
1. Tackle damaging climate pollution while supporting the creation of good jobs and lowering energy costs for families;
2. Accelerate work to address environmental injustices and empower community-driven solutions in overburdened neighborhoods; and,
3. Deliver cleaner air by reducing harmful pollution in places where people live, work, play, and go to school.
Attend this webinar to hear how the state of Michigan is using the $3 million planning grant to accelerate the implementation of the MI Healthy Climate Plan and provide a strong framework for pursuing corresponding upcoming competitive funding from the EPA. We will discuss the general purpose of the grant, our proposed approach to public and stakeholder engagement, grant timeline, future funding opportunities, and other grant deliverables.
