GREAT LAKES INTERNATIONAL COASTAL WETLANDS MONITORING

AGENCY:
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Great Lakes National Program Office

ACTION:
Notice of Funding Availability

SUMMARY:
EPA's Great Lakes National Program Office (GLNPO) is now requesting the
submission of full proposals for GLNPO funding.   The purposes of this request
for proposals are (1) to design, and validate, indicators to assess the
ecological integrity of Great Lakes coastal wetlands, (2) to design an
implementable, long-term program to monitor Great Lakes coastal wetlands, and
(3) to create, and populate, a binational database accessible to all scientists,
decision makers and the public.  GLNPO is requesting proposals from institutions
or organizations which have the capacity and experience to serve as the manager
and fiscal agent  representing a binational, multi-disciplinary, broad-based
consortium of Great Lakes wetland scientists and wetland resource managers.  The
successful applicant will enter into a Cooperative Agreement with GLNPO to
accomplish the three purposes stated above.  GLNPO will provide $400,000 of
funding during Fiscal Year 2000 to be supplemented by at least $200,000 from the
consortium submitting the successful proposal for a one year funding and project
period.  If the GLNPO budget remains consistent and the successful cooperative
agreement applicant (applicant) makes adequate progress toward meeting the
expectations discussed below, it is anticipated that the applicant will be able
to apply annually for an additional $400,000 from GLNPO ecological protection
and restoration funds for two subsequent one year funding and project periods
during Fiscal Years 2001 and 2002.  This anticipated future funding by GLNPO
will also require the applicant to provide at least $200,000 annually in
supplemental funds.

DATES:
The deadline for the submission of full proposals is April 28, 2000.
