SUBMIT COMMENTS: Make Billions in Climate Justice Funding More Accessible to CDCs

We encourage community development nonprofits to submit comments on the $3 billion Environmental & Climate Justice Block Grant Program. So far, $650 million of this Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) grant program is specifically targeted for community-based nonprofits and we expect more. 

As TA providers, potential grantees, and field experts, your comments are invaluable for designing an effective and accessible program. Your comments can help the EPA to bridge barriers between the community development field and their environmental and climate justice initiatives. 

Submit a comment letter by April 10. Responses can touch on as few or as many of the questions as you feel appropriate. Here are all the tools you need:

Please contact Chanse Sonsalla at [email protected] if you have any questions. And, subscribe to NACEDA’s e-communications to receive our special bulletin alerts when additional funding and other opportunities become available. Learn more about the EPA grants
