Region 8 Ecosystems Protection and Water Programs Consolidated Funding: This RFP announces the opportunity to submit a proposal under the Region VIII FY2002 Consolidated Funding Process. This program provides financial assistance for activities to support restoration of impacted watersheds, protection of pristine or high value watersheds or ecosystems, and water quality improvement. Contingent upon availability of funds, we will consider proposals under the following four programs: Regional Geographic Initiative (RGI)--Multi-media Funding Addresses EPA Region 8 priorities using partnership and community-based approaches Wetlands Protection Project Grants--Helps develop state, tribal, and local wetlands protection programs and strategies Water Quality Project Grants--Supports innovative efforts to address water quality impacts from point sources Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) Program Funding--Provides grants and contract support to address high-priority non-point source TMDLs Ecosystem Protection Grant Summaries Regional Geographic Initiative (RGI) Funding: The Regional Geographic Initiative (RGI) is a grassroots approach for environmental protection tailored to the community. RGI was established in 1994 to help each EPA Region address its own unique environmental challenges. It is a model of government partnering with communities and industries to develop long-term solutions to environmental protection. Many RGI projects are problems of high regional priority which are not addressed by national, media-specific environmental programs. For further information, please contact Pam Dougherty at 1-800-227-8917 X 6012 or Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) Program Funding: The TMDL funds are intended for use by the Regions, States, and non-profit agencies toward making progress in fulfilling EPA's commitment to resolving point source problems in section 303(d)-listed water bodies. The proposals should address high priority TMDL activities, including the development of TMDLs in water bodies impaired by non-point sources, support establishment and implementation of TMDLs, and to help meet the extra resource demands resulting from settlements and ongoing litigation. For further information, please contact Bruce Zander at 1-800-227-8917 X 6846 or Water Quality Project Grants: With the passing of the Clean Water Act (CWA), the United States committed to improving or maintaining water quality in the waters of the US. The CWA makes available grant dollars to continue the research in identifying innovative projects that will either reduce or eliminate pollution in the waters of the US including Tribal lands. The EPA disburses the grant dollars under the authority of the CWA, Section 104(b)(3). State, Tribal, and local governments, as well as non-profits and accredited schools, are eligible to apply for these grant dollars to fund water quality projects. Regional priorities for fiscal year 2003 funding include projects that address concentrated animal feeding operations, sanitary sewer overflows, storm water, biosolids, pretreatment, infrastructure funding related to operations and maintenance issues for small communities, capacity building for Tribes, restoration of priority watersheds (as identified in State Unified Watershed Assessments or 303(d) lists), and water quality impacts from point sources due to growth and sprawl. For further information, contact Jennifer Harris at 1-800-227-8917, x6254 or Wetlands Protection Project Grants: Since 1990, EPA has been providing grants to aid in the development of and protection programs. Some of the states, tribes, and local governments in EPA Region 8 have made progress toward creating a comprehensive program to protect wetlands. There are, however, gaps in the basic scientific understanding of the quantity and quality of this valuable resource and the changes that are occurring that are hindering even greater progress toward protecting it. The FY 2003 national grant guidance is focused on filling those gaps by establishing three priorities for directing grant funds. These priorities are: 1) monitoring and assessing the status and condition of wetlands; 2) improving the effectiveness of compensatory mitigation; and 3) improving the protection of isolated wetlands.
