This program began with passage of the Pesticide Registration Improvement Renewal Act (PRIA 2). The Act provides for funding to support partnership grants in the amount $500,000 in FY 2011. The Environmental Stewardship Branch (ESB) of the Office of Pesticide Programs‟ Biopesticides and Pollution and Prevention Division is funding grant agreements under this solicitation. The mission of ESB is to promote environmental stewardship nationally to protect human health and the environment by reducing risks of pests and pesticides through public-private partnerships, education, and other non-regulatory efforts.
Each year PestWise programs form dozens of new partnerships by awarding more than $3.1 million in grants to growers and researchers across the country. These grants fund projects that are exploring innovative practices, technologies and regulatory solutions to promote Integrated Pest Management (IPM) adoption. The Office of Pesticide Programs (OPP) administers four different grants that align with OPP's strategic goals and provide the platforms for our day-to-day work.
A competitive grant program that offers an innovative way for a community to organize and take action to reduce toxic pollution in its local environment. Through CARE, a community creates a partnership that implements solutions to reduce releases of toxic pollutants and minimize people's exposure to them. By providing financial and technical assistance, EPA helps CARE communities get on the path to a renewed environment.
The Northeastern IPM Center began funding projects through the IPM Partnership Grants Program in 2004. The lead Project Director must be from the northeastern region, but the eligibility for this program is broad. The IPM Center has primary responsibility for administering this program and writes the Request for Applications (RFA) with input from regional stakeholders.
Our grant programs foster the development and adoption of integrated pest management. They are an important part of the Northeastern IPM Center's mission and strategic plan. We advertise new requests for applications (RFAs) via this website and our email and print mailing lists.
Established in 2001, the North Central Risk Management Education Center funds results-based, producer-focused, competitive grants with funding from the USDA Cooperative State Research, Education and Extension Service (CSREES).
EPA created the Pollution Prevention (P2) Grant Program (formerly Pollution Prevention Incentives for States) under the authority of the Pollution Prevention Act of 1990. The grant program provides matching funds to State and Tribal programs to support P2 activities across all environmental media and to develop State-based programs. EPA believes these environmental programs have the best opportunity to promote P2 because States have closer, more direct contact with industry and are more aware of local needs.
Conservation Innovation Grants (CIG) is a voluntary program intended to stimulate the development and adoption of innovative conservation approaches and technologies while leveraging Federal investment in environmental enhancement and protection, in conjunction with agricultural production. Under CIG, Environmental Quality Incentives Program funds are used to award competitive grants to non-Federal governmental or non-governmental organizations, Tribes, or individuals.
