EPA and CARE: Localized Solutions to Pollution

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency stated that this year it will provide $2 million to the Community Action for a Renewed Environment (CARE) program to fund localized solutions to pollution reduction.

CARE projects will focus on two types of communities: ones striving to develop local environmental solutions and ones taking the next steps to implement toxin reduction stages in an effort to become a healthy, sustainable community.

With last year’s EPA funding, CARE helped nine communities across the nation achieve their goals. From water pollution to indoor pollutants and hazardous waste, CARE enabled communities to address pollution issues in order to establish a safer environment.
