EPA Solicits Proposals for Cooperative Agreement for the Pesticide Regulatory Education Program

For Release: April 15, 2019

EPA is soliciting applications to implement the Pesticide Regulatory Education Program (PREP) for FY 2020 through FY 2024. Eligible applicants include states, federally recognized Indian tribes, Alaska Native Villages, inter-tribal consortia and state and tribal institutions.

The Agency expects to provide an estimated $535,000 annually, depending on the Agency’s budget, for a total of up to $2,675,000 for five years (FY 2020 through 2024).
