GLIN==> "Great Lakes Legacy Act - Request for Projects" Deadline: March 31,2004







"Great Lakes Legacy Act - Request for Projects"

AGENCY:  United States Environmental Protection Agency - Great Lakes
National Program Office

ACTION:  Funding Availability

SUMMARY:  The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) Great Lakes
National Program Office (GLNPO) is requesting proposals for projects,
for up to $10,000,000, addressing contaminated sediment problems in
Great Lakes Areas of Concern located wholly or partially in the United
States (U.S. AOCs) as outlined in the Great Lakes Legacy Act of 2002
(the Legacy Act).

DATES:  The deadline for all Project proposals is 5:00 p.m. Central
Standard Time, March 31, 2004.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT:  Scott Cieniawski,
312-353-9184/cieniawski.scott@epa.gov or Marc Tuchman,
312-353-1369/tuchman.marc@epa.gov

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:  The Request for Projects (RFP) is available
on the Internet at http://www.epa.gov/glla.

The purpose of this request is to solicit ideas for projects that would
help to implement the Great Lakes Legacy Act.  In order to receive
funding under the Legacy Act, projects must be located in one of the 31
U.S. Great Lakes AOCs.  Top priority will be given to projects that are
geared toward on-the-ground remediation (i.e., actual implementation of
a remedial option) of contaminated sediments within a U.S. AOC.
Remediation projects would include, but are not limited to, remedial
options such as: dredging, capping, monitored natural recovery,
treatment technologies, or a combination of remedial alternatives for
contaminated sediment.

The next priority level would be given to projects that seek to move a
contaminated sediment site toward remediation.  These projects could
include: site characterizations, site assessments, source
identification/source control, monitoring, remedial alternatives
evaluations and short-term/long-term effects analyses.

Please note that the Legacy Act program is not a grants program, and
that this Legacy Act RFP is a departure from GLNPO’s annual funding
guidance process.  The funding guidance proposals for Great Lakes
sediment grant projects are being solicited under a separate request for
proposal process scheduled for release in January 2004.

The non-federal share of the cost of a project shall be at least 35% of
the total project costs and 100% of cost of operation and maintenance of
the project.  States, tribes, industry, non-governmental organizations,
and other stakeholders are eligible to apply.%vq謆-y-ߢ*'5p,a0Vz޵:,&ކi0	bw+)ڞz.ǟiS,Ơzm%y޷k?Xjyw-٥Nj!bm )zl	b{
