Sioux Falls Rejects $1M EPA Climate Grant

(Sioux Falls, SD) — The City of Sioux Falls has decided against opting into an EPA federal grant program. It would have provided the city with one-million dollars in funds aimed at creating plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The decision about the Climate Pollution Reduction Grants program was announced in a Friday afternoon statement from Holly Meier, the city’s sustainability coordinator. This decision is the latest in a series of actions related to climate and sustainability that have drawn criticism from environmental advocates like Mayor Paul TenHaken and a march on City Hall last week.
