Closing Date: January 23,2012:
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is soliciting proposals from eligible applicants for projects that will contribute to improved water quality in urban areas. The goal of the Urban Waters Small Grants is to fund research, studies, training, and demonstration projects that will advance the restoration of urban waters by improving water quality through activities that also support community revitalization and other local priorities. In general, projects should promote a comprehensive understanding of local water quality issues; identify and support activities that address these issues at the local level; engage, educate and empower communities surrounding the urban water body; and benefit surrounding communities including those that have been adversely impacted by the water pollution issues affecting the urban water body.
The total estimated funding available for the awards under this competition is up to approximately $3.8 million, with $1.8 million currently available and up to an estimated additional $2 million anticipated in FY 2012. Funding is contingent upon Agency funding levels, the quality of proposals received, and other applicable considerations.
