Grants & Funding
One of NCEE's responsibilities is to promote and advance the field of environmental economics, including its full range of sub-disciplines. To support this work, NCEE uses grants or cooperative agreements awarded to qualified parties outside EPA, as funds are available and when the activities are primarily for the benefit of the public.
Current Opportunities and Solicitations
NCEE awards funds through an open and competitive process by soliciting proposals from any eligible and qualified applicants. Although it was previously possible for NCEE to consider unsolicited proposals, we are no longer able to do so.
Interested persons are invited to sign up for our email distribution list to receive announcements of solicitations when they are publicly available. (please see disclaimer regarding email notification)
Grant-Funded Research in Environmental Economics
NCEE, sometimes in partnership with the EPA Office of Research and Development (ORD) and/or the National Science Foundation (NSF), awards grants on a variety of topics, including Benefits Analysis, Cost-Benefit/Cost-Effectiveness Analysis, Cost and Economic Impacts Analyses, Economic Incentives, and other topics. Summaries of these awards, as well as project reports and publications, are provided.
In addition, before it was transferred to NCEE in 2008, ORD administered the Economics and Decision Sciences grant program, as part of its Extramural Research program.
