Part 1 -- Applying for a Grant

Finding a Grant Opportunity

It is EPA policy to promote competition in the award of grants to the maximum extent practicable and to assure the competitive process is fair and open and that no applicant has an unfair competitive advantage. This policy is established in “EPA’s Policy for Competition of Assistance Agreements” (EPA Order 5700.5A1).

There are several places to find current EPA funding opportunities in which your organization may be interested. These include:

The Federal Government’s grant solicitation website called Grants.gov at: http://www.grants.gov/Exit EPA Disclaimer. You may search all agencies’ solicitations or the solicitations of a particular agency.

EPA solicitations at:

http://www.grants.gov/search/search.do?mode=AGENCYSEARCH&agency=EPA Exit EPA Disclaimer

Some of the solicitations listed may be closed, so be certain those you are interested in are still available.

You can also find EPA’s solicitations at:


Most of these solicitations are synopses of detailed solicitations to which you must respond. Synopses generally include links to the complete solicitation.

You may refer to the "Catalogue of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA)"Exit EPA Disclaimer to obtain listings of all Federal programs, including those of EPA, of course. The catalogue does not, however, have links to specific solicitations.

If EPA changes the requirements of a solicitation before the application deadline, EPA will notify all potential applicants in the same manner that the original announcement was announced.
