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.
Under this program, EPA will provide annual financial assistance for training focused on practical, up-to-date information on technical, policy, and management related issues as well as a wide array of cutting-edge pesticide topics. This pesticide-related training is intended for senior management, senior scientists, supervisors, and managers of pesticide regulatory programs from state/tribes and U.S. territories working under FIFRA Cooperative Agreements with EPA throughout the United States.
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).
