The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will soon announce a grant opportunity, funded by the Inflation Reduction Act, that will provide funding to businesses that manufacture, remanufacture, and refurbish construction materials and products for developing and verifying Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) and to States, Indian Tribes, and nonprofit organizations supporting such businesses.
This grant program, titled Reducing Embodied Greenhouse Gas Emissions for Construction Materials and Products, will help businesses develop accurate EPDs, facilitating the reliable tracking of emissions associated with the construction materials and products that they produce.
This grant opportunity is expected to be posted on Grants.gov in the coming weeks, and applicants will have 90 days to apply. The EPA recently released this grant opportunity’s Assistance Listing, which can be viewed at Sam.gov.
The awards will be made in Fiscal Year 2024. The advance notice provides potential applicants sufficient time to create and submit a competitive application to the Agency. Requirements include:
• An active account on the Sam.gov website; and
• Registration on Grants.gov.
It may take up to a month to complete registration on these systems. For help with grant-related questions and to receive notifications when this grant becomes available, write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
