Search Tips

The EPA Grant Awards Database contains a summary record for all non-construction EPA grants awarded in the last 10 years plus grants that were awarded before that time that are still open. PLEASE NOTE: Not all data elements were collected during the earlier years that are covered in this database, so some data fields may contain missing or incomplete values.

Below are some tips for using the Search forms to select a variety of different search criteria and output options detailed below.

Select more than one query option at a time to speed up the query and make the retrieval more focused. Only those grant awards matching all specified criteria will be retrieved. If you select several criteria for your search and no results are returned, you may have defined your search too narrowly. Try choosing fewer parameters for your search to see more results.
