(National Sentinel) Big Government: The Environmental Protection Agency is planning to award 10 grants worth a total of $1.2 million to nonprofits and environmental groups engaged in “environmental justice.”
“EPA defines ‘environmental justice’ as the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people regardless of race, color, national origin or income with respect to the development, implementation, and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations, and policies,” according to a grant announcement.
“Fair treatment means that no one group of people, including racial, ethnic, or socioeconomic groups, should bear a disproportionate share of the negative environmental consequences resulting from industrial, municipal, and commercial operations or the execution of federal, state, local, and tribal environmental programs and policies,” it continues.
Grant recipients include “environmental justice networks,” “faith-based organizations and those affiliated with religious institutions,” and other nonprofit groups.
The agency added it would give special consideration to organizations based in rural areas.
