Thriving Communities

GHHI’s Thriving Communities Grantmaking Program

In collaboration with the EPA, GHHI will award $40 million in grants, flowing from the Inflation Reduction Act, to fund 171 eligible projects in historically disinvested communities throughout EPA’s Region 3 (includes Delaware, District of Columbia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, and 7 federally recognized tribes). To further ensure equity and transparency, the Project includes a dedicated Advisory Board comprised of 11 organizations which will provide outreach support, applicant engagement, and ensure equitable, transparent project implementation. To ensure subrecipients’ technical assistance needs are met, the Project will also include a dedicated team of technical assistance partners with subject matter expertise congruous to the projects selected to receive TCGM subgrants.

Projected Award Levels:

  • 60 Phase I subgrants: 1 year up to $150,000 assessment projects
  • 51 Phase II subgrants: 1-2 years up to $250,000 planning projects
  • 50 Phase III subgrants: 2 years up to $350,000 project development projects
  • 10 Noncompetitive subgrants will be for 1 year up to $75,000 for severely capacity constrained communities (selected by Advisory Board)

NOTE: A grants portal will open on this site in August 2024.
