This notice announces the availability of funds and solicits applications from eligible entities to compete for financial assistance through the Targeted Airshed Grant Program.
This program will assist local, state, and/or tribal air pollution control agencies to develop plans and conduct projects
to reduce air pollution in nonattainment areas that EPA determines are the top five most polluted areas relative to ozone (O3), annual average fine particulate matter (PM 2. 5), or 24-hour PM 2. 5 National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS).
The overall goal of the Targeted Airshed Grant Program is to reduce air pollution in the nation’s areas with the highest levels of ozone and PM 2. 5 ambient air concentrations.
