This competition is exclusively for tribes and territories. Lead organizations for tribes and territories must submit their PCAPs to EPA , in order for lead organizations and other eligible applicants under this announcement to submit grant applications to fund measures contained in those plans. EPA anticipates awarding approximately 25 to 100 grants ranging between $1 million and $25 million under this tribes and territories competition.
Accordingly, the CPRG tribes and territories competition for implementation grants is designed to enable tribes and territories to achieve the following goals:
- Implement ambitious measures that will achieve significant cumulative GHG reductions by 2030 and beyond;
- Pursue measures that will achieve substantial community benefits (such as reduction of criteria air pollutants (CAPs) and hazardous air pollutants (HAPs));
- Complement other funding sources to maximize these GHG reductions and community benefits; and,
- Pursue innovative policies and programs that are replicable and can be “scaled up” across multiple jurisdictions.
This competition is also designed to incentivize eligible applicants to apply for funding together as a coalition to implement GHG reduction measures regionally.
The total funding expected to be available for awards under the CPRG implementation grants competition for tribes and territories is approximately $300 million.
