CARE Makes Green Decisions Easier

Updated: Aug 29, 2023

EES recently shared a post regarding health care sustainability. It focused on the importance of making environmentally conscious and sustainable decisions; however, that just got easier with a community-based EPA program. Community Action for a Renewed Environment (CARE) Grants Request For Proposals has been posted, and hospitals are eligible.

CARE is a unique community-based, community-driven, multimedia demonstration program designed to help communities understand and reduce risks due to toxic pollutants and environmental concerns from all sources. The program strives to identify and educate communities about the local sources of toxic pollution, and identify projects to reduce risks.

Under this RFP, the EPA will award CARE cooperative agreements at two levels (Level I and Level II) that support different types of activities. Level I cooperative agreements will support the following types of activities: working with the recipient to form community-based collaborative partnerships; identifying and developing an understanding of the many local sources of risk from toxic pollutants and environmental concerns; and setting priorities for the reduction of the identified risks and concerns of the community. Level II cooperative agreements will support activities to identify and implement actual “on the ground,” community-based projects for the reduction of the prioritized risks and concerns in their community.

Closing Date: March 22, 2011, for more info:
