EPA Source Reduction Assistance Grant Program

Applications are due by July 22, 2022.
EPA Regions 3, 4, 7, 8, 9 and 10 issued a Request for Application for eligible entities to implement pollution prevention projects through the Source Reduction Assistance (SRA) Grant Program. SRA grants can support research, experiments, surveys, demonstration projects, education and training related to source reduction approaches which is also known as “pollution prevention” or “P2.” Eligible applicants include States, local, interstate, and intrastate government agencies and instrumentalities, federally recognized tribes, inter-tribal consortia and nonprofit organizations. The Regions are particularly interested in receiving applications for projects that promote practical source reduction practices, tools, and training on P2 approaches to measurably improve human health and the environment by reducing the use of hazardous substances, reducing toxic pollutants, reducing resource use (e.g., water and energy) and reducing expenditures and liability costs to businesses, nonprofit organizations, and/or communities. EPA anticipates awarding 8-27 awards ranging from $40,000-$250,000.
