Request for Proposals to Support Source Reduction Assistance for FY 2003: EPA is interested in supporting source reduction/pollution prevention projects that will provide an overall benefit to the environment by preventing the generation of pollutants at the source. Source reduction initiatives can involve but are not limited to: reducing production waste and consumption, improving facility and institutional operations by reducing pollutant use and exposure, reformulating and procuring products to reduce toxic constituents, improving reuse and recycling opportunities, reducing disposal risks, providing direct technical assistance to businesses and other organizations, encouraging green product design and manufacturing, conducting outreach, collecting and analyzing data, and integrating pollution prevention concepts in state, regional and tribal environmental media programs affecting the air, water and land. For additional information on national and regional programs go to EPA's Pollution Prevention web site at http://www.epa.gov/p2. For FY 03 EPA will consider source reduction proposals under the following five programs: Design for the Environment, Environmentally Preferable Purchasing, Persistent, Bioaccumulative and Toxic Chemicals, Pollution Prevention projects of general interest, and Pollution Prevention projects of interest to states, regions and/or tribes Design for the Environment (DfE) Proposals should implement or support a pollution prevention/source reduction project that will provide an overall benefit to the environment by preventing the generation of pollutants at the source, as well as provide a method, to characterize the actual or potential environmental affects of the activity. In addition, DfE projects should involve work that examines the hazards of industrial chemical use, assesses alternative processes, formulations, and emerging technologies, and promotes risk reduction through cleaner technologies and safer chemical choices. <Additional information on the design for the environment program can be found at http://www.epa.gov/dfe> Environmentally Preferable Purchasing (EPP) Proposals should implement or support a pollution prevention/source reduction project that will provide an overall benefit to the environment by preventing the generation of pollutants at the source, as well as provide a method, to characterize the actual or potential environmental affects of the activity. In addition, EPP projects should demonstrate that the recipient's work will to encourage green purchasing, as well as, provide assistance and information to institutional purchasers on greener products. <Additional information on the environmentally preferable purchasing program can be found at http://www.epa.gov/opptintr/epp> Pollution Prevention projects of general interest Proposals should implement or support a pollution prevention/source reduction project that will provide an overall benefit to the environment by preventing the generation of pollutants at the source, as well as provide a method, to characterize the actual or potential environmental affects of the activity. <Additional information on general pollution prevention programs can be found at http://www.epa.gov/p2> Pollution prevention projects of interest to states, regions and/or tribes Proposals should implement or support a pollution prevention/source reduction project that will provide an overall benefit to the environment by preventing the generation of pollutants at the source, as well as provide a method, to characterize the actual or potential environmental affects of the activity. In addition, state, regional and tribal proposals must demonstrate that projects will promote pollution prevention across environmental media (i.e., air, water, and land), promote sustainable business/facility/institutional practices, and address priority state, regional, and/or tribal environmental concerns. <Additional information on state, regional, and tribal pollution prevention programs can be found at http://www.epa.gov/p2> The Persistent, Bioaccumulative, and Toxic (PBT) Chemicals Regional proposals must support the Agency-wide PBT Program.. Proposals should clearly indicate how they directly support, or are connected to, the larger Agency-wide PBT Program. This would include advancing goals and strategies from the draft National Action Plans, or addressing cross cutting issues that support the Program as a whole. In an attempt to help focus this criterion, please visit the PBT Program web site for more details concerning the national action plans. Please read these summaries prior to writing your pre-proposal. If you have a proposal concept that would help to reduce PBTs but is not included as a priority in the National Action Plans summaries, please consult with your Regional PBT Contact for guidance. <Additional information on the persistent, bioaccumulative, and toxic chemical program can be found at <http://www.epa.gov/pbt.>
