Written by WKTN Staff on March 20, 2019
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing a new $50-million grant program, the Healthy Schools Grant Program, to expand the Trump Administration’s efforts to protect children where they learn and play.
The announcement is part of the President’s proposed Fiscal Year 2020 budget and supports EPA’s ongoing commitment to evaluate and address risks to children’s health.
The program would provide a total of $50 million for schools to identify, prevent, reduce and resolve numerous environmental hazards.
Eligible recipients would include state and local governments, federally recognized tribal governments, and non-profit organizations.
