The requests for proposals (RFP) for the Pollution Prevention (P2) grant program should be released in late January to early February, 2020. The RFP for the Source Reduction Assistance (SRA) grant program should follow shortly afterwards. Please visit the following link for more information on the P2 and SRA grant programs: https://www.epa.gov/p2.
EPA has revised its National Emphasis Areas (NEA) for these grant programs in 2020. A full description of the revised NEAs can be found here:
Proposals will need to focus on one of the following sectors:
We are sharing the revised NEAs with you now, so that you can start planning a proposal for the P2 and SRA grant competitions. Once the RFPs are released, applicants will have two months to prepare and submit their proposals. If you have any questions, please let Mr. Alex Peck know. He can be reached at Mr. Alex Peck, Pollution Prevention Program, EPA Region 2, 212-637-3758 or at email@example.com.
A more detailed notice was released by our national office below:
The Pollution Prevention Program is updating the national emphasis areas (NEAs) in the upcoming FY 2020/2021 P2 Grant Solicitation, which is expected to be posted in late January/early February. The NEAs currently planned for the upcoming P2 grant solicitation are described below (subject to change until posting).
NEAs, which are the P2 grant program priorities, are established to help focus resources and funding to generate more impactful, synergistic and measurable results. The NEAs can also help facilitate sharing information from P2 technical assistance (e.g., information, training, tools) to businesses/facilities nationwide.
All applications for the FY 2020/2021 P2 Grant Solicitation will need to describe projects that support at least one of the currently planned NEAs described below as the focus of their P2 grant work.
NEA #1: Food and Beverage Manufacturing and Processing: Carry out P2 technical assistance and projects with food and beverage manufacturing and processing businesses/facilities normally associated with NAICS codes 311 and 3121 resulting in reduced toxic air emissions or water discharges, water or energy usage, hazardous materials generation and use, and/or business costs. Technical assistance projects or activities associated with entities that are not included under NAICS codes 311 or 3121, such as restaurants, grocery stores and other retail establishments, do not qualify for this NEA, but may be considered under other NEAs if the scope of the project is consistent with those other NEAs.
NEA #2: Chemical Manufacturing, Processing and Formulation: Carry out P2 technical assistance and projects with businesses/facilities normally associated with NAICS code 325 and associated subsectors (4-6 digit NAICS codes under 325). Projects under this NEA should facilitate and encourage businesses within this NAICS code to identify, develop, and adopt P2 practices in the production of their chemical products and formulations. Projects can also include working with businesses within this NAICS code to promote research, development, and marketing of green chemistry products and processes that reduce or eliminate the generation of hazardous substances.
NEA #3: Automotive Manufacturing and Maintenance: Carry out P2 technical assistance and projects with businesses/facilities in the automotive industry, normally associated with NAICS codes 3361, 3362, 3363, and 8111 and associated subsectors. Projects under this NEA should facilitate and encourage businesses within these NAICS codes to identify, develop and adopt P2 practices in manufacturing and maintenance of automobiles and automotive products.
NEA #4: Aerospace Product and Parts Manufacturing and Maintenance: Carry out P2 technical assistance and projects with businesses/facilities in the aerospace industry, normally associated with NAICS codes 3364 and subsectors for manufacture and 488190 for maintenance. Projects under this NEA should facilitate and encourage businesses within these NAICS codes to identify, develop and adopt P2 practices in any aspect of aerospace product and parts manufacturing and maintenance.
NEA #5: Metal Manufacturing and Fabrication: Carry out P2 technical assistance and projects with businesses/facilities normally associated with NAICS codes 331 and 332, which are businesses associated with primary metal manufacturing and/or fabricated metal manufacturing and subsectors. Primary metal manufacturing is associated with smelting and/or refining ferrous and nonferrous metals from ore, pig or scrap, using electrometallurgical and other process metallurgical techniques. Fabricated metal product manufacturing includes transforming metal into intermediate or end products, such as forging, stamping, bending, forming, and machining, used to shape individual pieces of metal; and other processes, such as electroplating, polishing, coating, welding and assembling. Projects under this NEA should facilitate and encourage businesseswithin these NAICS codes to identify, develop and adopt P2 practices in any aspect of primary metal manufacturing and/or fabricated metal manufacturing and subsectors.

NOAA Environmental Literacy Grants: Supporting the education of K-12 students and the public for community resilience - $3 million
Applications Due: November 25, 2019 for pre-applications; March 26, 2020 for Priority 1 full applications
Eligible Entities: k-12 public and independent schools and school systems, state and local government agencies, Indian tribal governments
The goal of this funding opportunity is to build environmental literacy of K-12 students and the public so they are knowledgeable of the ways in which their community can become more resilient to extreme weather and/or other environmental hazards, and become involved in achieving that resilience.
Projects should build the collective environmental literacy necessary for communities to become more resilient to the extreme weather and other environmental hazards they face in the short- and long-term. Building sufficient environmental literacy in a community means that these communities are composed of individuals who are supported by formal and informal education that develop their knowledge, skills, and confidence to: (1) reason about the ways that human and natural systems interact globally and where they live, including the acknowledgement of disproportionately distributed vulnerabilities; (2) participate in scientific and/or civic processes; and (3) consider scientific uncertainty, cultural knowledge, and diverse community values in decision making.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
EPA Awards $10.8M for National Environmental Education Training Program
WASHINGTON - More than 4,400 environmental educators will gain training and leadership opportunities in 2017 through a new cooperative agreement between the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the North American Association for Environmental Education (NAAEE).
EPA is funding up to $10.8 million over five years through the agency's teacher training program, formally known as the National Environmental Education Training Program (NEETP).
“Environmental educators help learners of all ages understand and value the ecosystems around them,” said U.S. EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy. “The teacher training program gives educators access to the best classroom and out-of-classroom materials and professional development opportunities, focused on using the environment as a platform for learning science, technology, engineering and math skills to improve decision-making.”
NAAEE will launch a five-year program called “ee360,” starting in 2017. The association is bringing together a broad collection of partners: Antioch University, the Center for Diversity and the Environment, Earth Force, the NAAEE Affiliate Network, Project Learning Tree, Stanford University, the University of Oregon, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, the U.S. National Park Service, the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the U.S. Forest Service.
NAAEE and these partners will train professionals to deliver high-quality environmental education in formal and non-formal education settings. In the first year, ee360 aims to train more than 4,400 educators. The partners will also strengthen the field by building infrastructure through leadership clinics, developing state certification programs, using technology, expanding access to resources, and researching the value of environmental education.
Since 1992, EPA's teacher training program has funded training, helped universities and states develop accredited certification programs, and promoted the national Environmental Education Guidelines for Excellence.
