When will the EPA Release Phase II Funding details?
Notices of funding opportunities (NOFOs) for the second phase of the CPRG program, the $4.6 billion implementation grants phase, are anticipated to be released in September 2023.
The EPA intends to hold two competitions for the $4.6 billion – a general competition and a competition only for tribes and territories.
EPA anticipates funding a wide variety of measures and is planning to fund individual grants ranging anywhere between $2 million and $500 million. These applications would likely be due on or around April 1, 2024.
Tribes and territories competition
EPA anticipates funding measures with individual grants in the $1 million to $25 million range. These applications will likely be due on or around April 30, 2024.
The EPA is expecting to establish funding tiers that will create competition between comparably sized applications.
More information on implementation grants and timing will be available in the coming weeks on the CPRG website.
