The California Environmental Protection Agency has extended the application deadline for its next round of Environmental Justice Small Grants to August 13, 2021.

The CalEPA EJ Small Grants Program is open to nonprofit organizations and
tribal governments, and is focused on supporting environmental justice
projects across California. The maximum grant amount is $50,000 and the
grant term is 18 months.

Projects selected for the grants will address a variety of environmental and
public health objectives, including:

* Disseminating information about environmental challenges and decision making processes

* Enhancing local capacity to respond, adapt and prepare for climate change impacts

* Ensuring safe drinking water

* Guarding against toxic exposures and increasing resource conversation locally

*Designing and implementing collaborative efforts to preserve the State's natural and cultural resources with an emphasis on traditional
ecological knowledge and tribal sciences

These projects may also entail regional and local capacity-building efforts
to improve access to state program benefits. Grants under this program are
awarded on a competitive basis, and are contingent on available funds.

The original application deadline was June 30, 2021. The application
deadline was extended to give applicants more time to develop their
applications. Applications must now be received by August 13, 2021.

Applications must be either sent to the EJ Grants Program mailbox (Email address: EnvJustice@calepa.ca.gov) or mailed to CalEPA on or before the application deadline, June 30, 2021.

    3. Funding Opportunity- Informational Webinars & FAQs for the FY 2022 Coping with Drought Competitions
    Since 2007, the National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS) has funded more than 60 innovative drought research projects through the Coping with Drought research competition. Research through the Coping with Drought competition assesses impacts of drought on agriculture, ecosystems, and water resources and develops decision support tools for regional, state, and local use. This research contributes to the understanding of how communities become aware of drought threats and how they can improve preparation and planning. The projects incorporate consultation with stakeholders, and focus on information that is most useful for decision-making to reduce vulnerability; models and tools that bring this information to decision makers; and strategies for improving NIDIS’ engagement with communities in preparedness.

    This competition will focus on research to improve our understanding, early warning, and management of drought risk in terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems to inform more deliberate and expanded decision-making that supports sustainable, healthy, and resilient ecosystems.
