EPA is hosting a virtual listening session for tribes on new Bipartisan Infrastructure Law funding for a Pollution Prevention grant opportunity focused on increasing supply and demand for safer, environmentally preferable products, such as those certified by EPA’s Safer Choice program or identified by EPA’s Environmentally Preferable Purchasing program. EPA wants to hear your thoughts to help inform the development of this grant opportunity. In the listening session, EPA will provide background on the grant opportunity and then lead a discussion to get feedback on topics such as:
• Potential project ideas
• Opportunities and challenges in working with businesses in tribal communities
• Opportunities and challenges in advancing Environmentally Preferable Purchasing and Safer Choice in tribal communities
• Partnering with other organizations on projects
• Grant funding amounts
Please let us know if you need any special accommodations by reaching out to firstname.lastname@example.org by August 26, and we will make every effort to provide reasonable accommodation.
