USEPA GLNPO FY 1998 GRANT PROCESS



FY 1998 GRANT PROCESS

In November, 1997, GLNPO solicited preproposals for $3.7 million in
projects to be funded during 1998.  The requested funding categories
were: habitat protection and restoration; contaminated sediments;
pollution prevention; exotic species; and emerging issues. In response,
128 applicants submitted 230 preproposals, seeking $30.2 million.

The number of applicants and preproposals decreased from FY97 (from 140
and 289, respectively); while the total funding requested increased
(from $26 million).

Applicants include: State agencies (35 preproposals); Universities (59);
Federal agencies or research centers (38 ); Tribal organizations (10);
Counties or Municipalities (15); and Others ( 73).  The number of
applications from State agencies and Federal agencies was down
considerably from the previous year, while the number of applications
from most other types of organizations stayed about the same.  65% of
the preproposals were submitted electronically using GLNPO's pilot
electronic submission program. The success of this program will be
evaluated following completion of the review process.  EPA staff
(including "Lake Teams" having State, Tribal, and other Federal
participants) are now helping evaluate the preproposals.

GLNPO has published the list of preproposals on the Internet at a page
linked to <http://www.epa.gov/glnpo/fund/98summary.html>.   Applicants
will be contacted with decisions by the end of March.
