EPA Smart Growth Grants and Other Funding

On this page:

We occasionally offer grants to support activities that improve the quality of development and protect human health and the environment. If you see a grant for which you wish to apply:

  • Read the Request for Proposals (RFP) carefully to determine what activities or projects are eligible.
  • If you are not familiar with EPA's community revitalization and smart growth-related work, review our webpages to learn about what we do.
  • Submit your proposal according to the instructions in the RFP.


  • You can set up an email alert on to be notified automatically when a grant featuring a search term, such as "community revitalization" or "smart growth," is posted.
  • See EPA's webpage on Understanding, Managing, and Applying for EPA Grants for helpful tips on writing a grant proposal and policies and regulations covering grants.
  • We accept grant proposals only for open solicitations.
