Pollution Prevention (P2)

FY 2014 Pollution Prevention Grant Results Summary

The Pollution Prevention Program reports the environmental results of grants. These grants produce annual environmental results in pounds of hazardous materials reduced, BTUs of energy, water and dollars saved. 

This program funds grants/cooperative agreements that implement pollution prevention technical assistance services and/or training for businesses and support projects that utilize pollution prevention techniques to reduce and/or eliminate pollution from air, water and/or land.

Grant funds may be used to support state and tribal-led P2 programs or projects that measurably reduce the environmental footprints of local and regional businesses. Achievements in this regard involve adopting new or expanding existing environmental strategies or solutions that significantly reduce or eliminate pollution from air, water and/or land prior to relying on recycling or waste clean-up.

P2 awards may be funded in the form of grants or cooperative agreements and will be issued and managed through EPA’s Regional Pollution Prevention Program Offices. The amount of grant funding released each year is dependent upon Congressional appropriation.
