The Carbon Reduction Program

The Carbon Reduction Program (CRP) provides funds for projects designed to reduce transportation emissions (CO2 emissions from on-road highway sources) by developing State carbon reduction strategies and funding projects to reduce transportation emissions. 

State proposals must support the reduction of transportation emissions and quantify the total carbon emissions from production, transport, and use of materials used in the construction of transportation facilities in the State, among other requirements. Proposals may reduce traffic congestion via alternatives to single-occupant vehicle trips, consider project elements that proactively address racial equity, workforce development, economic development, and remove barriers to opportunity and support climate change resilience.

Clean School Bus Program (CSB)

The EPA’s Clean School Bus (CSB) Program is intended to fund multiple rounds (6-10?) of grants and rebate funding over five years (FY 2022-2026).  The funding is for the replacement of older buses with new zero-emission and low-emission models, and it includes funding for electric charging and alternative fueling infrastructure, and workforce training.

Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund (GGRF)

This program will create three competitions to choose the entities that will coordinate disbursement of federal funds for clean technologies nationally, community clean financing capacity locally, and adoption of clean distributed solar energy. These three programs are known as:

The National Clean Investment Fund competition will fund 2–3 national nonprofits that will partner with private capital providers to deliver financing at scale.

The Clean Communities Investment Accelerator competition will fund 2–7 hub nonprofits with the plans and capabilities to rapidly build the clean financing capacity of specific networks of public, quasi-public and non-profit community lenders.

The Solar for All competition will provide up to 60 grants to states, Tribal governments, municipalities, and nonprofits to expand the number of low-income and disadvantaged communities that are primed for investment in residential and community solar
