The Denver Regional Council of Governments will receive $1 million from the Inflation Reduction Act to cut pollution and build clean energy economies across the Denver-Aurora-Lakewood metropolitan statistical area.
The Environmental Protection Agency announced the news on May 3.
“This program, funded through the Inflation Reduction Act, provides flexible planning resources to local governments, states, tribes and territories for climate solutions that protect communities from pollution and advance environmental justice,” a news release reads.
According to the news release, DRCOG will collaborate with municipalities and communities to create a climate action plan while focusing on low-income and disadvantaged communities.
The grants will be awarded and administered later this summer.
“This is the first step in a strategic effort to help our cities build common-sense solutions to reduce climate pollution,”reads EPA Regional Administrator KC Becker’s statement in the news release. “EPA looks forward to supporting locally-grown projects that will make Denver-area communities healthier and stronger.”
