The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is today announcing that it has awarded, under the Agency's new Environmental Justice Small Grants Program, 61 grants to financially assist community-based/grassroots organizations, non- profit organizations and tribal governments to address environmental justice issues and concerns.
The Agency received 250 applications from parties interested in obtaining a portion of the $500,000 set aside for this program. The grant recipients were awarded up to $10,000 each and were required to provide a minimum five percent match.
