As part of the Administration’s commitment to move quickly to implement the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), EPA is working at an accelerated pace to share information about the Climate Pollution Reduction Grants (CPRG). The CPRG program will provide significant resources to state, territory, local, and tribal governments to develop ambitious climate action and air pollution reduction plans and to implement measures from those plans. The CPRG is a two-stage program – with $250 million in non-competitive planning grants coming soon, followed by $4.6 billion of competitive implementation grants.
EPA will hold a webinar at 2 p.m. Eastern time, Wednesday February 15, 2023, for state, territory, tribal and local governments to provide general information on the CPRG. EPA is working to release the program guidance for planning grants as soon as March 1. This guidance will be focused specifically on the $250 million non-competitive planning grants portion of the program. Later this year, EPA will issue a separate notice of funding opportunity regarding the implementation grants, which will be awarded under a competitive process.
EPA is designing a CPRG program that will provide flexible support to state, territory, tribal, and local governments regardless of where they are in their climate planning and implementation process. Programs and projects included in plans could further goals and policies for clean energy, energy efficiency, and other measures to reduce greenhouse gas air pollution across various sectors of the economy. Recipients will also have the flexibility to use the planning grant money in the ways that best achieve these outcomes – from program development to staffing and contractor support.EPA will host an hourlong webinar at 2:00 PM Eastern time Wednesday February 15, 2023. Registration is required. Please register at https://www.epa.gov/inflation-reduction-act/climate-pollution-reduction-grants#CPRG-Webinars. The webinar will also be recorded and posted to the website.
