Grants for Water Security Training and Assistance: In Fiscal Year 02, EPA received a supplemental appropriation to improve the safety and security of the Nation s drinking water systems. The funding is intended to reduce the vulnerability of drinking water systems to terrorist attacks and to enhance their security and ability to respond to emergency situations. In support of that goal, this grant program funds security training activities for non-profit organizations that provide technical support or assistance to drinking water systems serving populations of fewer than 50,000 people. Specifically, EPA is seeking to enhance the ability of non-profit organizations to provide support and training in the areas of vulnerability assessments, emergency response planning and preparation, and security enhancements. Under this program non-profit organizations will obtain security-related training for themselves and their affiliated organizations. While expending grant funds, these non-profit organizations can then train additional trainers at state, tribal, or local agencies who directly or indirectly deal with drinking water systems that serve populations of fewer than 50,000 people at no cost to these agencies. Under this grant program non-profits can only train additional trainers and not end users such as drinking water systems. Security-related support is limited to those that are trained. On July 9, 2002, EPA issued a water security strategy document entitled Water Security Strategy for Systems Serving Populations Less Than 100,000/15 MGD or Less. The purpose of the grant program announced by this RFP is to support that strategy by funding activities aimed at providing competent non-profit trainers and technical personnel in the area of drinking water system security. These trainers and technical personnel would then train staff from states, tribes, or local agencies on drinking water system security. This grant program complements the water system security grants given to states and territories (also outlined in the July 9, 2002, water security strategy document) by providing the needed water security experts/trainers to these groups that can be then utilized in state water security programs. Grantees should coordinate with states, tribes, or local authorities to avoid any duplication of effort and to maximize the utility of the funding received. In summary, EPA is soliciting grant applications from non-profit organizations that actively provide technical support and/or assistance to drinking water systems and that are interested in applying for federal assistance grants to fund training (train-the-trainers) of their staff, including affiliates, in security issues and to provide no-cost training to state, tribal, or local agencies that directly or indirectly deal with drinking water systems. EPA has allocated $1,500,000 for this grant program and will award grants to eligible non-profit organizations. Awards will be up to $300,000 per organization and must be used for the activities cited above.
