Addressing climate and environmental justice is at the core of HUD’s mission to create strong, sustainable, inclusive communities. Environmental justice means ensuring equal protection from environmental and health hazards and providing equal and meaningful opportunity to participate in the decision-making process to achieve a healthy environment. Among the actions to empower communities to achieve climate resilience, facilitate economic opportunities, and eliminate health risks caused by environmental injustices, the HUD’s Office of Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes has issued the following funding opportunities:
