Rhode Island's 2025 Climate Action Strategy and Climate Pollution Reduction Grant

RIDEM has developed an application for EPA’s Climate Pollution Reduction Grant (CPRG) planning process and funding opportunity

The first step was the development of Rhode Island's Priority Climate Action Plan. This plan includes a focused list of near-term, high-priority, implementation ready projects to reduce GHG emissions and an analysis of GHG emissions reductions that would be achieved through implementation. Of particular interest are projects that will help advance the goals of the Justice40 Initiative
