Climate Change Research Grants
EPA funds climate change research grants to improve knowledge of the health and environment effects of climate change, and provide sustainable solutions for communities to effectively manage and reduce the impacts of a changing climate.
EPA’s supports research focusing on a few important aspects of how climate change affects air, water, the environment and human health:
- Investigating the impact of climate change on air pollution gases and particles, water quality and ecosystems
- Understanding the underlying factors contributing to changes air pollution and water quality
- Using modeling tools to better understand the impacts of extreme events on air and water quality as well as provide better modeling tools to predict air, water and ecosystem characteristics under a changing climate.
