The U.S. EPA's Climate Pollution Reduction Grants (CPRG) program is a $5 billion investment that provides states, local governments, and tribal nations with resources to plan and implement reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and other harmful air pollution.

Identifying priorities for climate action

The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency is using a $3 million planning grant to strategically advance the state's Climate Action Framework and enable the state, tribal nations, and local governments to access competitive implementation funding through the CPRG program. 

State government leaders have developed a Priority Climate Action Plan (PCAP) that will unlock eligibility for federal implementation dollars.

The PCAP uses Minnesota’s Climate Action Framework as a foundation to describe near-term actions that state, tribal nations, and local governments can take to reduce climate pollution. The plan also includes an analysis of climate action benefits for low-income and disadvantaged communities, including air quality, economic, and health outcomes.

This plan covers the entire state, enabling eligible entities within Minnesota to apply for competitive funding to implement projects that reduce climate pollution through the program. To be eligible for funding, implementation activities must be described in the PCAP.
