Grant funds shall be used to support projects, programs or activities that promote environmental justice. The purpose, goals, and general procedures and guidelines for applying for the Environmental Justice Collaborative Problem-Solving grants will be announced each year in a solicitation. OEJ's Environmental Justice CPS grants seek to accomplish a strategically defined set of objectives that address one or more environmental and/or public health issues by focusing on two key areas (e.g., capacity-building of the community residents, and forming collaborative partnerships). Any affected community-based organization, working on or planing to carry out projects to address local environmental and/or public health concerns, with non-profit status either demonstrated through designation by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) organization or incorporated as a non-profit under applicable state law may submit an application during the period of the solicitation. All awards will be made in the form of a grant in the amount of $100,000.00 to be used over a three-year period. To be eligible, you must be an affected local community-based organization. No funds made available for this program shall be used for the acquisition of real property (including building) or the construction or substantial modification of any building. Grant funds may not be used for lobbying or underwriting legal actions, including the preparation of court testimony and hiring of expert witnesses.
