How should EPA grant recipients request that EPA provide them administrative relief from a requirement due to COVID-19?
Recipients should email their Grant Specialist (GS) for the agreement and send a copy to their Project Officer (PO) and provide a description of the action they want EPA to take. The email should include a brief justification that includes how the COVID-19 public health crisis has impacted their ability to comply with a requirement in the agreement. An authorized EPA official such as an Award Official, Grant Management Officer or Associate Grant Management Officer will provide EPA’s decision on the request via email. Depending on the type of action, the grant agreement may also be amended.
