EPA has released the FY 2013 National Environmental Information Exchange Network Grant Program Solicitation Notice. States, Federally recognized Tribes, and Territories are eligible to apply. The Notice is available at www.epa.gov/exchangenetwork/grants. Applications are due 9 November 2012.
In FY 2013, EPA expects to award an estimated $10,000,000 for 40-50 grants of up to $300,000 for individual applicants and $500,000 for partnerships. The number of awards will depend on the final amount of EPA’s appropriation for the Grant program, the number of applications received, the amounts of proposed budgets, and the outcome of EPA’s reviews. Applications may be submitted as hardcopy or electronically at Grants.gov. EPA anticipates that it will inform applicants of its selection decisions in or around April 2013 and plans to issue awards by 31 July 2013.
