The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) CPRG program is funded by the Inflation Reduction Act and provides states, local governments, and tribal nations flexible resources to plan for and pursue ambitious GHG pollution reductions to achieve three broad objectives:
- Tackle damaging climate pollution while supporting the creation of good jobs and lowering energy costs for families;
- Accelerate work to address environmental injustices and empower community-driven solutions in overburdened neighborhoods; and,
- Deliver cleaner air by reducing harmful pollution in places where people live, work, play, and go to school.
Through the CPRG program, the state of Michigan received a $3 million planning grant that EGLE's Office of Climate and Energy will use to refine and implement the MI Healthy Climate Plan and prepare Michigan communities to compete in nationwide competitive federal funding competitions. On September 20, 2023, the U.S. EPA announced two competitions for $4.6 billion in implementation grants under the CPRG program. Attend this webinar to hear about the general purpose of the grant program, our proposed approach for the planning and competitive grants, public and stakeholder engagement opportunities, timelines, and deliverables.
