Pennsylvania Energy And Environmental Challenge Grant Program (Peec)

Project Information

Award Amount:$40,000.00
Dollars Leveraged:$0.00
Start-End Dates:10/1/03-9/30/04
Description:The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) used the grant funds to support the Pennsylvania Energy and Environmental Challenge (PEEC) Grant program. The PEEC Grant program allows DEP to form better relationships with business and research institutions. DEP selects PEEC Grant recipients based upon the following project concentrations:

1) Sustainable use of natural resources (e.g., projects that will result in reductions of natural resource use or contamination, or reductions in the dependence on fossil fuels);
2) Climate change mitigation (e.g., reducing or mitigating the amounts and/or effect of greenhouse gases - carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, perfluorocarbons, hydrofluorocarbons, and sulfur hexafluoride);
3) Ground level ozone mitigation (e.g., projects that result in emission reductions of nitrogen oxide and/or volatile organic compounds, particularly in metropolitan areas);
4) Enhancement of biological diversity (e.g., projects that encourage the use of ecological practices that address wetlands and land use and their affect on biological diversity. Projects may include integration of water use and land use, and the building of sustainable communities to conserve and protect natural resources); and
5) Toxics reduction in the environment (e.g., projects that result iin the reduction of priority persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic chemicals in hazardous waste by fifty (50) percent by 2005.)
