EPA Grants

EPA Grants Management Training for Applicants and Recipients

This online training course is designed to introduce EPA grant applicants and recipients to key aspects of the entire grant life cycle, from preparation of an application through grant closeout.  Throughout this training, the term grant is used as a general term to refer to both grants and cooperative agreements. 

The course is divided into separate modules that can be completed individually.  Each module includes knowledge checks to verify your understanding of key concepts.  If you need to leave a module, the last slide to be completed will be saved, and you will be able to return to that location later.  Upon completion, you will be prompted to generate a downloadable certificate of completion.
