[GreenYes] 2007 EPA Region 9 Resource Conservation RFIP

Solicitation now open. See:

Apologies for Cross postings.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Region 9 is soliciting
proposals to fund projects that address solid waste reduction and
management. Funds will be awarded pursuant to Section 8001 of the
Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (?RCRA?), 42 U.S.C. §6981.
Funding will be in the form of cooperative agreements. Funds will be
awarded to applicants carrying out projects that serve the following
states and territories: Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada, the U.S.
territories in the Pacific Islands, and the lands in Indian Country
belonging to over 140 federally recognized tribes which fall under EPA
Region 9's geographic area.

The aim of this funding is to support innovative ideas with the goal of
fostering positive change. Projects may include studies, surveys,
investigations, demonstrations, training, and public education programs.
All demonstration projects must demonstrate applications, technologies,
methods or approaches that are new, innovative or experimental. A
project that is carried out through a routine or established practice is
not a demonstration. This solicitation describes the program goals and
gives general information on the application and selection process,
proposal format, and evaluation criteria.
