EPA Announces New RFP On Smart Growth Streets And Emergency Response


EPA announces new RFP on "Smart Growth Streets and Emergency Response"

A new grant RFP issued by EPA's Development, Community, and Environment Division seeks to bring together emergency response officials, local government officials, transportation experts, and developers to engage in a problem-solving process around the issue of simultaneously meeting the needs for emergency response with the design of smart growth streets. The goal is to create a solution or set of solutions that have the endorsement of these multiple interests and will be applicable nationally across the U.S. and/or in significant regions of the country. The RFP will also support outreach efforts to educate relevant stakeholders nationally.

EPA expects to award $150,000 for Phase 1 (years 1 and 2) with the possibility of additional, incremental funding of up to $500,000 in total over a five year project period. Funding for future years is dependent on funding availability, agency priorities and applicant performance. EPA may award up to three assistance agreements.

Eligible applicants include: States, territories, Indian Tribes, interstate organizations, intrastate organizations, and possessions of the U.S., including the District of Columbia, public and private universities and colleges, hospitals, laboratories, other public or private nonprofit institutions, and individuals. For-profit organizations are not eligible to apply.

Proposals are due by 5PM, East Coast Time on June 15, 2007.
