60201 The Environmental Justice Government-to-Government Program

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Office of Environmental Justice and External Civil Rights (OEJECR) has released a Request for Applications (RFA) to support and/or create model state, tribal, local, and territorial government activities that lead to measurable environmental or public health results in communities disproportionately burdened by environmental harms and risks. Fundable projects should factor in: (1) state and local data; (2) state and local leadership; (3) state and local results; (4) relationships between delegated programs (i.e., federal environmental programs delegated to and carried out by states, tribes, local government, and US territories) and state, tribal, local, and territorial environmental justice policies, and (5) state, tribal, local, and territorial government targeting of disproportionately burdened areas.

Interest areas fall into the same five broad categories as listed above under the EJCPS item, and fundable projects notes include the energy efficiency / electrification and renewable energy in public schools.
