EPA Anticipates Award of Nearly $11 Million in Grants for Wildfire Smoke Preparedness in Community Buildings

EPA is announcing the anticipated award of nine grants, totaling $10.67 million in funding for projects under the Wildfire Smoke Preparedness in Community Buildings Grants Program.

“After the wildfires in Maui, the wildfire smoke that blanketed the East Coast last summer, and the many devastating wildfires in the West, we are all aware of the very real health impacts of smoke as well as the critical importance of smoke preparedness,” said EPA Deputy Administrator Janet McCabe. “EPA is providing more than $10 million in grant funding that will help provide important public health protections in communities across our country, especially in those communities who have been overburdened by smoke pollution for far too long.”

Awards will range from approximately $350,000 to $2,000,000 to organizations to enhance community wildfire smoke preparedness. Grantees will conduct project activities in seven states and the Nez Perce Tribal land.
