Funding Alert: EPA Environmental Justice Thriving Communities Grantmaking Program

EPA is issuing this solicitation to request applications for the design and management of a new Environmental Justice (EJ) competitive pass-through program where EPA will competitively select multiple pass-through entities to provide grant funds via sub-awards to community-based nonprofit organizations and other eligible sub-recipient groups representing underserved and disadvantaged communities. The definition of the term Pass-through entity in 2 CFR 200.1 provides that a pass-through entity is a non-Federal entity that provides a sub-award to a sub-recipient to carry out part of a federal program. The EPA provides extensive guidance to pass-through entities in the EPA Subaward Policy and related materials available on the EPA Internet website.

The closing date for application is May 31, 2023. For more information about this program visit
