Grant Support For Air Pollution Reduction Projects

If you have a project idea to reduce air pollution in your community and need help applying for grant funding, the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency is here to help.

Puget Sound Clean Air Agency staff are available to help community-based organizations, local governments, and ports pursue grant funding for emission-reduction projects in overburdened communities.

The Clean Air Agency is prioritizing its support for projects that reduce airOBC Opens in new window pollution including fine particulate matter, diesel exhaust, and greenhouse gas emissions. Projects must be focused within the Agency’s defined overburdened communities.

Our support services focus on grant-funded projects that will reduce emissions from the major sources of air pollution in our region. Examples of projects might include but are not limited to: diesel-fueled vehicle replacements and electrification, installing electric vehicle charging stations, and improving building heating by installing heat pumps.

What type of support can Clean Air Agency staff provide?

Potential grant application support services (will vary by grant opportunity and by Agency staff capacity and time constraints):

  • Identifying appropriate funding opportunities
  • Technical analysis: mapping, emission-reduction calculations
  • Narrative writing support
  • Grant materials review, completion check
  • Partner coordination. If multiple partners are interested in similar projects, the Agency can help coordinate partners with the goal of producing a stronger, more competitive grant application.
  • Support successful grant recipients with:
    • Understanding reporting requirements and establishing appropriate systems

What are partner requirements?

  • Partners must be eligible to apply for the grant funds
  • Partners must submit all grant application materials on their own behalf
  • Partners must have capacity to complete the scope of work at the time application is submitted or through the grant

Email us if you have questions, would like to discuss if a grant your organization is interested in applying for would be considered for support, or or to be added to our contact list for when projects and funding opportunities are identified.

These services are available thanks to funding support approved by the WA Legislature and managed by WA Dept. of Ecology.
