Climate Showcase Communities
This is an EPA competitive grant program to assist local and tribal
governments in establishing and implementing climate change initiatives
– the first Request for Applications (RFA) was published in 2009. EPA
will soon release the next RFA announcing $10M in competitive funding.
The overall goal of the Climate Showcase Communities grant program is
to create replicable models of sustainable community action that
generate cost-effective and persistent greenhouse gas reductions while
improving the environmental, economic, public health, or social
conditions in a community.
EPA will offer peer exchange, training, and technical support to grant recipients, and encourage replication across the country to promote the creation of sustainable climate management programs that are not only the foundation for stabilizing our climate, but also create jobs and fulfill other local government priorities.
