The Community Action for a Renewed Environment (CARE) program, sponsored by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), is a competitive grant program that offers an innovative way for communities to take action to reduce toxic pollution. Through CARE, communities create local collaborative partnerships that implement local solutions to reduce releases of and minimize exposure to toxic pollutants. EPA helps CARE communities assess the environmental risks they face and provides access to voluntary programs to address local environmental priorities. In addition, EPA offers support for communities to develop their own approaches to reducing toxics. Examples of some of the EPA voluntary programs that reduce exposure to toxics and create safer communities include programs that: reduce emissions from diesel engines, clean abandoned industrial sites, reduce emissions from small business operations while reducing costs, improve the indoor environment in schools, and use pollution prevention to protect drinking water supplies.
