EPA Empowering Communities to Reduce Risks from Toxic Exposure

EPA is launching a new grant program to help communities understand and reduce the risk of exposure to toxic chemicals. The Community Action for a Renewed Environment (CARE) program is a new and unique community-based, community-driven, multi-media demonstration program. Through CARE, EPA is offering financial and technical assistance to help communities understand and reduce risks caused by toxics from multiple sources. The CARE program will award $1.65 million, in grant money, through two levels of funding. Under Level I, communities will receive approximately $75,000 to establish collaborative partnerships and set priorities for reducing toxic risks in their environments. Level II offers approximately $300,000 to communities that already have a broad-based collaborative partnership, have identified priorities, and are ready to implement risk reduction strategies. A total of ten projects will be funded nationally in FYO5. Applications are due no later than May 20, 2005.
