MSU receives $10M to serve as environmental justice resource for region, tribes

Montana State University will receive at least $10 million to serve as an environmental justice resource center for six states and 28 tribes, according to a news release. 

MSU was among 17 institutions to receive funding, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency leaders say the grant is meant to bolster rural communities’ environmental justice efforts. As a resource center, the university will provide technical support, training and other resources to organizations throughout the EPA Region 8, which includes Montana, Colorado, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, Wyoming and 28 tribes. The university will also serve as a resource for people interested in environmental justice and policy. 

To receive free technical assistance for environmental justice needs, local and tribal governments and organizations can complete a form at epa.gov.
