Climate Pollution Reduction Grants Program

TCEQ has received an EPA grant for statewide planning to reduce climate pollution as part of the CPRG program.

Under this grant, TCEQ is developing two plans—a priority action plan and a comprehensive action plan. These plans will include an inventory of greenhouse gas emissions for Texas and ways to reduce air pollution and greenhouse gases together.

About the Program

The CPRG program is an EPA program created as part of the Inflation Reduction Act. The CPRG program consists of two phases. As part of Phase I, Texas has received grant funding to develop a plan to reduce greenhouse gases within the state. Six Texas metropolitan areas have also received Phase I grants.

Texas will be able to apply for competitive implementation grants in Phase II. More information can be found on the EPA’s CPRG webpage.
