SACRAMENTO – The California Resources Agency and Department of Transportation (Caltrans) on Friday announced the 2008-09 grant cycle of the Environmental Enhancement and Mitigation (EEM) Program.


Grant applications must be received by Monday, Dec. 22.


The program offers grants to local, state, and federal governmental agencies and nonprofit organizations for projects to mitigate environmental impacts caused by new or modified state transportation facilities.


Grants generally will be limited to $350,000 per project and are given in three categories:
