Pesticide News Story: EPA Solicits Applications for Assistance to Support the Tribal Pesticide Program Council
EPA’s Office of Pesticide Programs is soliciting applications for logistical and administrative assistance to support the Tribal Pesticide Program Council (TPPC) as it works to strengthen tribal pesticide programs. The TPPC informs member tribes of pesticide issues, promotes pesticide education and awareness, and assists in the establishment, development, and implementation of comprehensive tribal pesticide programs. The TPPC also is a forum for tribal pesticide and environmental officials to raise tribal pesticide program implementation issues to EPA, offer input on national pesticide policy that affects tribes and offers a network for tribal pesticide officials to share information.
The total funding for the five-year period of the cooperative agreement is about $1 million and up to an additional $20,000 in-kind contribution for the use of EPA conference rooms and AV equipment. Approximately $195,000 is expected to be available in fiscal year (FY) 2009. At the conclusion of the first year of performance, incremental funding of approximately $200,000 may be made available for each year, depending on the Agency’s budget, allowing the project to continue for a total of five years.
Proposals are due by 5:00 PM Eastern Standard Time on June 2, 2009. For more information on this request for applications, please see the Request for Proposal (23pp, 118K, about PDF). If you still have questions, contact Mary Powell (firstname.lastname@example.org).
