Government-to-Government Resiliency Planning in Virginia’s Coalfield Region

Join Appalachian Voices’ application for an EPA EJG2G grant

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recently announced $100 million in environmental justice funding opportunities through two grant programs — the Environmental Justice Collaborative Problem-Solving Cooperative Agreement (EJCPS) and Environmental Justice Government-to-Government (EJG2G) Programs.

The EJG2G Project will support communities working to build economic and environmental strength. Appalachian Voices is offering technical assistance to communities throughout the seven coalfield counties in Virginia to seek federal and state funding for their projects.
