Grants and Announcements
- On June 30, 2020 The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced the availability of approximately $77,000 in grants to fund Clean Air Act (CAA) projects for federally recognized tribes in the Commonwealth of Virginia. The CAA Amendments of 1990 established a funding mechanism to assist tribes in addressing air pollution and prevention activities within Bureau of Indian Affairs approved jurisdictional boundaries. This is the first time that the Region has been able to offer grant funding to tribes in the Mid-Atlantic area. EPA anticipates awarding between one and five cooperative agreements ranging from $15,000-$77,000. Proposals are due by COB August 30, 2020.
