While I am not working on this directly, I do believe that innovative public involvement / data collection activities related to EJ / equity / health / transportation conducted by community groups and / or, *ideally* in cooperation with transportation agencies would be eligible. Note the focus on preparedness / resilience. Due Jan. 9.
$30K would definitely kickstart some local dialogue and help bolster a portfolio that could ultimately appeal to larger philanthropic funders doing community development work? . . . Very exciting!
Just a thought. Full info below.

Subject: [epa-ej] Deadline for the 2015 EJ Small Grants Request for Applications Extended

Deadline for the 2015 EJ Small Grants Request for Applications Extended
Correction: An earlier version of this message incorrectly stated that the funds will be awarded for a two-year period. It should have said one-year period.
The deadline for submitting applications for EPA's 2015 Environmental Justice Small Grants (EJSG) Program has been extended to January 9, 2015. The EJSG Program provides funding for eligible applicants for projects that address local environmental and/or public health issues within an affected community. The EJSG Program is designed to help eligible non-profit organizations and Tribal communities understand and address exposure to multiple environmental harms and risks at the local level.
EPA recognizes the critical role of helping communities with localized strategies to avoid, lessen, or delay the risks and impacts associated with our changing climate. As a result, this year's EJSG program will have a special emphasis on proposals supporting community-based preparedness and resilience efforts (community climate resiliency). In an effort to ensure that support reaches new areas, the Agency also is prioritizing funding to organizations that have not recently received an award under the EJSG Program.
The total estimated amount of funding available for awards under this solicitation for fiscal year 2015 is approximately $1,200,000. EPA anticipates awarding up to four grants per EPA region in amounts of up to $30,000 per award for a one-year project period.
