White House Withdraws Hold on Environmental Protection Agency Grants

Shortly after inauguration on Jan. 20, President Trump and his staff ordered the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to cease awarding grants and contracts while they reviewed what was happening.

Late Friday, the review was completed and all grants and contracts, totaling at least $4 billion a year, were back on track, with nothing being withheld, according to the EPA’s acting administrator, Catherine McCabe.

The EPA makes grants to scientists, states and Native American groups, among others.
