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 implement projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and other harmful air pollution.

Minnesota's climate action priorities

To unlock the ability to apply for these funds, the first step is to develop a Priority Climate Action Plan that describes the types of climate pollution reduction projects that are important to Minnesotans. Building on the Climate Action Framework, state government requested additional ideas for climate action projects that could be included in our plan. Using over 350 responses from residents, we have developed a draft Priority Climate Action Plan. We are currently working to incorporate feedback on the draft and will finalize by the EPA's March 1 deadline.
