Environmental Justice Grants and Resources

The primary purpose of EPA’s environmental justice grant programs is to support and empower communities as they develop and implement solutions that significantly address environmental and/or public health issues at the local level.

Other EPA resources, such as technical assistance, mapping tools, and training materials provide the public with additional means to improve understanding and build capacity to effectively participate in local decision-making opportunities and transform communities.
