EPA Region 8 is soliciting proposals for the FY11 Wetland Program Development Grant (WPDG) competition. The WPDG was initiated in FY90 to provide applicants an opportunity to carry out projects to develop and refine comprehensive wetland programs. The authority for this grant program is Section 104(b)(3) of the Clean Water Act (CWA), which restricts the use of these grant funds to improving wetland programs by conducting or promoting the coordination and acceleration of research, investigations, experiments, training, demonstrations, surveys, and studies relating to the causes, effects, extent, prevention, reduction, and elimination of water pollution.
The Region 8 Wetland Program Development Grant RFP is open to States, Tribes, local governments, interstate agencies, and tribal consortia. This RFP encourages full and open competition by these applicants and does not give unfair bias to certain eligible applicants over another.
Proposals for the 2011 WPDG are due on June 27, 2011. Proposals must be received by the Region by close of business June 27, 2011, or if applying via grants.gov, 11:59 pm EDT June 27, 2011. Proposals received after these times will not be considered. We encourage applicants to pay very close attention to the eligibility criteria in order for their proposals to be considered.
