3. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has announced a request for proposals to the Pollution Prevention (P2) Grants Program. The deadline is May 3, 2006. “The grant program provides matching funds to state and tribal programs to support P2 activities across all environmental media and to develop state programs. EPA believes state-based environmental programs have the best opportunity to promote P2 because states have closer, more direct contact with industry and are more aware of local needs. The purpose of the P2 grant program is to give state programs the capability to assist businesses and industries in identifying better environmental strategies and solutions for complying with federal and state environmental regulations. It also aims to improve business competitiveness without increasing environmental impacts. The majority of P2 grants fund state- based projects for technical January 13, 2008ion, data collection, research, demonstration projects, and recognition programs.” (text from US EPA website). Cost sharing or match is required, awards are up to three years duration, and funding is limited to $150,000 per project. For more information, see: http://www.epa.gov/oppt/p2home/grants/ppis/ppis.htm (solicitation # EPA-OPPT-06-002).

4. We thank you in advance for your patience as the GCRC website undergoes a complete re-structuring. We will be using new software and will be adding some new tools to the site. In the near future, we’ll ask you to send updates and corrections to your material on the current site so that the content will also be up to date.
