The EPA Region 9, Pesticides Program, is soliciting pesticide special project proposals from eligible applicants for fiscal year (FY) 2011 funding authorized under Section 20 of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA), 7 U.S.C.ยง136r. The following entities are eligible to apply for grant funds under this RFP: Federally-recognized Tribes; Tribal Organizations and Inter-tribal Consortia whose membership is made up exclusively of Federally-recognized Tribes.

The awards will provide financial assistance to carry out demonstration, training, monitoring, outreach and/or education projects that assess or reduce risks to human health and the environment from pesticide exposure in Indian Country. Demonstration projects must involve new or experimental technologies, methods, or approaches, where the results of the project will be disseminated so that others can benefit from the knowledge gained in the demonstration project.

This program has no statutory or regulatory match requirement.


The expected total amount of funding available for award in FY 2011 is approximately $300,000. Maximum award amount per proposal is set at $50,000. EPA Region 9 anticipates awarding 4 to 6 grants and/or cooperative agreements from this announcement, subject to the availability of funds, the quality of proposals received, and other applicable considerations.
