Environmental Enhancement & Mitigation

The California Natural Resources Agency is no longer accepting project proposals for the Environmental Enhancement and Mitigation Program (EEM).  All project proposals submitted are being evaluated. Applicants submitting the most competitive proposals will be invited to participate in the next level of the competitive process, anticipated late Summer 2021. 

EEM Program 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. Approximately $13.4 million from two years of appropriations will be awarded this cycle.
