Request for Applications to Support the National Pesticide Information Center

EPA is soliciting applications for a cooperative agreement from eligible organizations to support the National Pesticide Information Center (NPIC), a program that provides the public with objective, science-based information on pesticide-related subjects. EPA expects to provide up to $1,000,000 annually, depending on the Agency’s budget, for a total of 5 years (2019-2024).

As in the past, the cooperative agreement will carry out the NPIC through a website, toll-free telephone service and outreach. Trained experts will respond to questions on the risks associated with pesticide use, restrictions on pesticide use, who to contact for regulatory enforcement, and how to report information on incidents. It will also collect information on suspected incidents that callers give voluntarily.

EPA must receive proposals through Grants.gov no later than 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on July 30, 2018.
