Effective February 17, 2015, EPA grant applicants must use Grants.gov to submit their applications. It is highly recommended that EPA applicants complete their registration on Grants.gov now, since the entire process can take up to 30 days to complete. Information located at Submitting an Application to Grants.gov Apply and Applicant Resources for Grants.gov will help you get started. Applicants are also encouraged to view a previously recorded EPA Information Webinar session/ presentation regarding Grants.gov or register for an available session.

Meanwhile, for those grant applications that are not otherwise required to be submitted through Grants.gov, Region 9 is continuing to accept signed Adobe format (.pdf) applications through our dedicated electronic mail box: grantsregion9@epa.gov. Applicants electing to still use the electronic mail option must do so by close of business February 16, 2015. As a reminder, only current, scanned .pdf forms with signatures and associated documents will be accepted as valid applications.

If you have been asked to apply for an EPA grant, then please review the following grant application materials. Submitting the complete application package to the Region 9 Grants Management Office will act as your formal request for grant funding. Your application will be reviewed, and if it meets EPA standards, a formal grant may be awarded to your organization. A completed grant application does not guarantee that a grant will be made.
