>* EPA Pollution Prevention Grants Program - EPA seeks grant
>funding applications from State and Tribal Governments for projects
>that address the reduction or elimination of pollution by businesses
>across all environmental media: air, water and land - EPA has about
>$4.1 million in grant funds for the program in FY 2006 - EPA notes
>that " ... The goal of the grants program is to assist businesses
>and industries in identifying better environmental strategies and
>solutions for reducing or eliminating waste at the source. Funds
>awarded through the grants program are to be used to support State
>and Tribal P2 programs that address the reduction by businesses of
>potentially harmful pollutants across all environmental media: air,
>water, and land. Programs should reflect comprehensive and
>coordinated pollution prevention planning and implementation efforts
>within the State or Tribe. Past P2 Grants have demonstrated that
>facilities have ample opportunities to implement pollution
>prevention and that source reduction can be a cost-effective way of
>meeting or exceeding Federal and State regulatory requirements. For
>purposes of this grant announcement, pollution prevention/source
>reduction is defined as any practice which: Reduces the amount of
>any hazardous substance, pollutant, or contaminant entering any
>waste stream or otherwise released into the environment (including
>fugitive emissions) prior to recycling, treatment or disposal;
>Reduces the hazards to public health and the environment associated
>with the release of such substances, pollutants, or contaminants;
>and Reduces or eliminates the creation of pollutants through: (i)
>increased efficiency in the use of raw materials, energy, water, or
>other resources; or (ii) protection of natural resources by
>conservation. Examples of pollution prevention/source reduction
>projects or activities include: equipment or technology
>modifications, process or procedure modifications, reformulation or
>redesign of products, substitution of raw materials, and
>improvements in housekeeping, maintenance, training, or inventory
>control ... For additional information and guidance about activities
>covered by grants issued under the PPA ... see

>outcome measures expected to be achieved under the grants awarded
>through this announcement include, but are not limited to: Pounds of
>pollution reduced, BTUs of energy conserved, Gallons of water saved,
>and Dollars saved through P2 efforts. Examples of output measures
>expected to be achieved under the grants awarded through this
