Overview

EPA has announced that it is developing a new $50 million grant program through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law that will support states, Tribes and territories in developing and implementing UIC Class VI programs. These programs regulate the geologic sequestration of carbon dioxide (CO2) into UIC Class VI wells. Geologic sequestration is a key component of carbon capture and storage, which reduces CO2 emissions to the atmosphere and mitigates climate change.

In launching this program, the Office of Water is inviting states, Tribes and territories to submit letters of intent (LOI) to indicate their interest in the new grant program. The Office of Water has also developed a LOI template that state, Tribes, and territories may use. The deadline for LOIs was March 20, 2023.

Responses to this request will help EPA understand where there is interest in applying for these funds and implementing a Class VI program. Upon receiving LOIs, EPA will determine state-by-state funding allocations and implementation recommendations. EPA intends to award the full $50 million in a one-time distribution through this process.
