Oklahoma’s Climate Pollution Reduction Grant (CPRGOK)

DEQ submitted Oklahoma’s Priority Action Plan to EPA on February 29, 2024. View Priority Action Plan

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) created the Climate Pollution Reduction Grants (CPRG) program in 2023 with funding from the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA). The Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) applied for and was awarded $3 million under Phase 1: Planning Grants.

As the lead agency for CPRGOK, DEQ will work with multiple partners to develop a statewide Priority Action Plan (PAP), Comprehensive Action Plan (CAP), and Status Report starting August 2023. Through the PAP and CAP, DEQ will develop a statewide greenhouse gas inventory and develop plans for reducing emissions from both criteria pollutants and greenhouse gases.

Priority Action Plan coverEPA has also issued a Notice of Funding Opportunity for a highly competitive CPRG Implementation Grants General Competition. Implementation grants are required to have their projects represented in a Priority [Climate] Action Plan in order to apply. The PAP includes potential emissions reductions, community and workforce impacts, and other co-benefits. Following public feedback and input on potential implementation-ready projects, DEQ developed and submitted Oklahoma's PAP to EPA on February 29, 2024.
