Region 9 Wetland Program Development Grant

Wetland Program Development Grants (WPDGs) assist state, tribal, local government (S/T/LG) agencies and interstate/intertribal entities in developing or refining state/tribal/local programs which protect, manage, and restore wetlands. The primary focus of these grants is to develop/refine state and tribal wetland programs. A secondary focus is to develop/refine local (e.g. county or municipal) programs.

The California Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Project for Sacramento County

The Sacramento County Incentive Project promotes easy access to zero-emission vehicle infrastructure by offering $14 million in rebates for the purchase and installation of eligible Electric Vehicle (EV) chargers in Sacramento County. $7.7 million in rebates is available for Level 2 EV chargers, and $6.3 million is available for DC fast chargers.

Organic Agriculture Research and Extension Initiative

The Organic Agriculture Research and Extension Initiative (OREI) seeks to solve critical organic agriculture issues, priorities, or problems through the integration of research, education, and extension activities. The purpose of this program is to fund projects that will enhance the ability of producers and processors who have already adopted organic standards to grow and market high quality organic agricultural products. Priority concerns include biological, physical, and social sciences, including economics.

Alternative Manure Management

The Alternative Manure Management Program (AMMP) provides financial assistance for the implementation of non-digester manure management practices in California, which will result in reduced greenhouse gas emissions. Alternative manure management practices involve handling manure in ways that don't involve using an anaerobic digester. Currently, eligible practices for funding through AMMP include: pasture-based based management; solid separation or conversion from flush to scrape in conjunction with some form of drying or composting of collected manure.

State Water Efficiency and Enhancement Program (SWEEP)

The State Water Efficiency and Enhancement Program (SWEEP) provides financial assistance in the form of grants to implement irrigation systems that reduce greenhouse gases and save water on California agricultural operations. Eligible system components include (among others) soil moisture monitoring, drip systems, switching to low pressure irrigation systems, pump retrofits, variable frequency drives and installation of renewable energy to reduce on-farm water use and energy.

FY 2019 National Environmental Information Exchange Network Grant Program

The EPA Exchange Network Grant Program is soliciting project proposals that use the Environmental Information Exchange Network (EN) to:
  • Facilitate sharing of environmental data, especially through shared and reusable services.
  • Streamline data collection and exchanges to improve its timeliness for decision making.
  • Increase the quality and access to environmental data through discovery, publishing, outbound, and analytical services so it is more useful to environmental managers.

U.S. EPA 2018 Targeted Airshed Grant Program

DEADLINE EXTENDED: February 7, 2019 This program will assist local, state and/or tribal air pollution control agencies to develop plans and conduct projects to reduce air pollution in nonattainment areas that EPA determines are the top five most polluted areas relative to ozone (O3), annual average fine particulate matter (PM2.5), or 24-hour PM2.5 National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS). The overall goal of the Targeted Airshed Grant Program is to reduce air pollution in the nation’s areas with the highest levels of ozone and PM2.5 ambient air concentrations.

Clean Fleets Program

The Clean Fleets Program is an incentive program that offers grant funding to help offset a portion of the cost of purchasing or leasing new light- and medium-duty zero-emissions vehicles for fleets that operate within the Air District’s jurisdiction.

2019 Charge! Program

The Bay Area Air Quality Management District's 2019 Charge! Program is open and accepting applications until June 30, 2019. Early application submissions are highly encouraged as the previous year's cycle was oversubscribed.

The Charge! Program offers grant funding to offset the cost of purchasing and installing new charging stations at facilities within the Bay Area Air Quality Management District's jurisdiction. Charge! strives to rapidly expand access to electric vehicle (EV) charging stations to accelerate adoption of EVs in the Bay Area.
