California Natural Resources Agency – EEM

  Grant Amount: $750,000


The California Natural Resources Agency is accepting applications to the Environmental Enhancement And Mitigation Program.
The Environmental Enhancement and Mitigation (EEM) Program was established by the Legislature in 1989 and amended on September 26, 2013. Eligible projects must be directly or indirectly related to the environmental impact of the modification of an existing transportation facility or construction of a new transportation facility
The EEM Program encourages projects that produce multiple benefits which reduce greenhouse gas emissions, increase water use efficiency, reduce risks from climate change impacts, and demonstrate collaboration with local, state and community entities.
Eligible EEM projects must fit one of the following Categories:
  • Urban Forestry Projects are designed to offset vehicular emissions of carbon dioxide through the planting of trees and other suitable plants.
  • Resource Lands Projects are for the acquisition, restoration, or enhancement of resource lands (watersheds, wildlife habitat, wetlands, forests, or other significant natural areas) to mitigate the loss of or detriment to such lands within or near the right of way for transportation improvements.
  • Mitigation Projects Beyond the Scope of the Lead Agency responsible for assessing the environmental impact of the proposed transportation improvement.
Matching funds are not required for EEM program grants. However, project proposals which include other sources of funds may be more competitive.


Any state, local, federal or 501(c)(3) non-profit entity may apply for and receive grants. The agency or entity is not required to be a transportation or highway related organization, but must be able to demonstrate adequate charter or enabling authority to carry out the type of project proposed, and be eligible for funding under Article XIX of the State Constitution. Partnerships are encouraged; however, only one agency may submit an application.
