NOTICE: Apply Now to Partner with Port Houston on the EPA Clean Ports Grant
The Port Houston EPA Clean Ports Program Grant Call for Partners (CFP) response deadline has been extended to 1/24/24 at 5pm CST. Responses are now to be sent to [email protected] in PDF format with the word ‘Response’ and the title of the call for partners you are responding to in the subject line of the email.
Jan. 19 Update: The documents below include a reference to submit proposals through grantsinterface.com – this is old and is superseded by the email address above.
Multiple partners are expected to be selected. To be selected as a partner the respondent must hold an active registration with https://www.sam.gov prior to contract execution.
After selection, Port Houston will work with our partners to develop the best combined application possible to leverage your proposed project/commitment in obtaining funding to become the cleanest port in the country! The selection will occur in February with the application to EPA expected to be due in May 2024. This is why projects you already have planned will be paramount to our application readiness. We look forward to working with you. And remember, if not chosen for this opportunity, your project may be selected for other potential opportunities throughout 2024 with Port Houston.
