Environmental Enhancement & Mitigation

The California Natural Resources Agency has updated the timeline for the Environmental Enhancement and Mitigation (EEM) grant program. The EEM program was one of several programs postponed as a result of the impacts of COVID-19 that are now moving forward with new timelines.

The updated timeline includes an anticipated release of the solicitation in January 2021 with announcement of awards in January 2022.  Pending budget approval, it is estimated the total funding available will be $13.4M which includes $6.7M each from the 2020 and 2021 appropriation.

Information about technical assistance workshops will be available in early Fall of 2020.

The EEM Program is an annual program established by legislation in 1989 and amended on September 26, 2013. It offers grants to local, state and federal governmental agencies and to nonprofit organizations for projects to mitigate the environmental impacts caused by new or modified public transportation facilities.
