EPA Seeks Proposals to Support State Groundwater Programs

Agency anticipates funding one award at $300,000 per year for three years

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is soliciting proposals from eligible applicants for technical assistance and support that will enhance communication and coordination between EPA and the states to protect groundwater and that will develop and expand the capability of state Underground Injection Control (UIC) programs (Class I-V and proposed Class VI), tribes with UIC primary enforcement authority (primacy), and source water protection (with an emphasis on groundwater protection) programs.

EPA anticipates funding one award under this announcement. It is anticipated that the award will be incrementally funded at approximately $300,000 per year and will have a three-year project period.

Information about the request for applications, which is open until April 27, 2009, is available at
