On March 22, 2016, EPA announced the availability of $7.94 million in federal grants to support pollution prevention (P2) projects during Fiscal Years 2016 and 2017. Projects should reduce or eliminate the use of hazardous materials, water, and energy and will support the P2 Program National Emphasis Areas of:

  • Climate Change Mitigation/Prevention of Greenhouse Gas Emissions;
     
  • More Sustainable Food Manufacturing and Processing; or
     
  • State or Community Approaches to Hazardous Materials Source Reduction.

The grants are available to state agencies, colleges, and universities (serving as instrumentalities of the states), federally-recognized tribes, and intertribal consortia. Corporate entities could collaborate with one of these organizations in order to commercialize or expand their business. EPA expects to award up to 40 grant agreements totaling $7.94 million in federal P2 grant funding over both years. Proposals are due by May 9, 2016.
