CEPOL continues to ensure that effective responses to COVID 19 questions are a top priority. As part of these efforts, this communication announces the reopening of the National Environmental Cooperation Program (SEJCA) and the availability of funds to U.S.
states, territories, tribal governments and local governments to propose projects focused on COVID-19 and other areas mentioned in Section I. The SEJCA program provides eligible organizations with funds to cooperate with underserved communities, to understand, promote and integrate approaches, to enable useful and measurable improvements for public health and/or the environment in these communities. For the purposes of this announcement, the term „underserved community“ refers to a community that has concerns about environmental equity and/or vulnerable populations, including minority, income, land, tribal, Aboriginal and homeless groups. SPECIAL REFLEXES: For this contest, the EPO will pay particular attention to applications focused on the priority of the programme: public education, training, emergency planning and/or studies on the impact of COVID-19 on underserved communities and vulnerable populations – the aim of this particular reflection is to address the effects of the current COVID 19 pandemic on urban and rural populations in the environment.
