Basic Information

Community Action for a Renewed Environment (CARE) Logo

Community Action for a Renewed Environment (CARE) is a two-part competitive grant program that offers communities an innovative way to build their local environmental capacity. Grantees work in partnership with EPA to identify, educate and address their community's local environmental risks.

The CARE program provides access to EPA staff and our technical resources. CARE projects help communities better understand their environmental issues, build their local capacity, and address environmental and human health risks. The goal of the CARE program is to build a sustainable effort in those communities for years to come.
