The EPA on Tuesday announced $100 million is now available for environmental justice grants, with $30 million available to community-based nonprofits and $70 million available to state, local, and tribal governments. “I firmly believe many solutions to environmental crises in this country lie at the community level,” said Catherine Flowers, founding director of the Alabama-based Center for Rural Enterprise and Environmental Justice. “People in EJ communities often know what’s best,” she added. The EPA is hosting “pre-application” webinars on January 24 and 26 to aid applicants in the application process. (E&E News, Bloomberg Law, AP, Washington Post $, The Hill, Politico Pro $)
