EPA funding supports grants in several pesticide related areas:
Initiative: prevent agricultural pesticide misuse in homes, schools,
- Strategic Agricultural Initiative: supports FQPA-related projects for state and nonprofit organizations. Administered by each EPA Regional Office, the Initiative's projects emphasize the use and study of reduced risk pesticides and alternatives to pesticide use. The Initiative also seeks partnerships with regulatory agencies, industry and the agricultural community.
- Pesticide Environmental Stewardship Program Regional Grants: support pollution prevention projects that are important to and complement ongoing efforts in EPA's Regional Offices.
- Resource and Development Grants
State Pesticide programs also receive cooperative agreement grant dollars to help meet enforcement and programmatic goals in each state. Some state pesticide laboratories receive revolving fund dollars to help update equipment and standards.
