Climate Pollution Reduction Grants Program

The Climate Pollution Reduction Grants (CPRG) program provides funding to states, local governments, tribes, and territories to develop and implement plans for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and other harmful air pollution. The CPRG program is a two-phased grant program that provides funding of $250 million for noncompetitive planning grants and $4.6 billion for competitive implementation grants. Planning funds can be used to update existing climate, energy, or sustainability plans or to develop new plans.

As the regional air pollution control agency responsible for reducing air and climate pollution, the Sac Metro Air District is ready to lead the climate planning process for the Sacramento region to guarantee the opportunity to compete for this new CPRG funding. Sac Metro Air District is working with other regional leaders and partners to ensure that Sacramento's regional climate plan includes all desired climate pollution reduction strategies. Stay tuned as these plans and efforts evolve into an integrated strategy that will improve air quality, benefit environmental justice communities, and address historical air quality disparities. The Priority Climate Action Plan Roadmap contains additional background information, program details, and a program timeline.
