GreatLakesNews



REMINDER - Proposals are due to GLNPO by 8:00 AM Central Time, Monday,
March 31, 2003.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Great Lakes National Program
Office (GLNPO) is requesting Proposals for up to $4,827,000 for projects
furthering protection and clean up of the Great Lakes ecosystem.
http://www.epa.gov/glnpo/fund/2003guid/

Proposals are requested through the "FY2003-2004 USEPA Great Lakes
National Program Office Funding Guidance - Four Requests for
Proposals."  This Funding Guidance is different from Funding Guidances
issued by GLNPO during the last 10 years.  It consolidates the annual
USEPA GLNPO competitive solicitation (the "General Request") with funds
previously managed by USEPA Water programs in Regions 2 and 5 for
projects for development and implementation of Lakewide Management Plans
and Remedial Action Plans (the "Specific LaMP/RAP Request").   Also
included in this Funding Guidance are new solicitations for Conferences
and Publications and for a Grants Servicing Intermediary.

The Funding Guidance contains these Requests for Proposals:
RFP 1: GENERAL REQUEST - $2,720,000
- Contaminated Sediments
- Pollution Prevention and Reduction (Great Lakes Binational Toxics
Strategy)
- Habitat (Ecological) Protection and Restoration
- Invasive Species
- Strategic or Emerging Issues

RFP 2: SPECIFIC LaMP/RAP REQUESTS - $1,752,000
29 descriptions of specific projects furthering the Lakewide Management
Plans and Remedial Action Plans, such as monitoring, outreach, training,
assessment, and coordination.

RFP 3: CONFERENCES AND PUBLICATIONS - $275,000
Requests in three general areas will be reviewed by GLNPO on a monthly
basis throughout the year and as long as money is available; however,
Proposals for a State of Lake Michigan Basin Conference and for
Basin-wide RAP Priorities are due on March 31, 2003.

RFP 4: GRANTS SERVICING INTERMEDIARY - $60,000 to $100,000
An "intermediary" organization would make and administer grant
sub-awards for habitat and possibly other areas.  Applicants for RFP 4
should contact GLNPO to request an application package and should not
make an electronic submission.

Assistance (through grants,cooperative agreements, and interagency
agreements) is available pursuant to Clean Water Act 104(b)(3) for
activities in the Great Lakes Basin and in support of the Great Lakes
Water Quality Agreement.  State pollution control agencies, interstate
agencies, other public or nonprofit private agencies, institutions, and
organizations are eligible to apply; however eligibility for RFP2B (a
porition of the specific RAP/LaMP request) is limited to State, Tribal,
and interstate or intertribal agencies.

We request that Proposals for RFP 1, RFP 2, and RFP 3 be developed using
our electronic Proposal Submission System (PSS2003). The Funding
Guidance and the PSS2003 program are available on the Internet from
http://www.epa.gov/glnpo/fund/2003guid/    For general questions, please
contact Michael Russ.
