EPA announces 2019 grant funding opportunities for state and tribes to respond to Superfund sites

October 5, 2018

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced it will accept requests from October 15, 2018 through December 14, 2018, for grants to establish and enhance state and tribal response programs at Superfund sites.

The primary goal of this funding is to ensure state and tribal response programs include, or are taking reasonable steps to include, certain elements of a response program and establishing a public record. Another goal is to provide funding for other activities that increase the number of response actions conducted or overseen by a state or tribal response program.

For fiscal year 2019, the EPA will consider funding requests up to a maximum of $1 million per state or tribe. Subject to the availability of funds, EPA regional personnel will be available to provide technical assistance to states and tribes as they apply for, and carry out, these grants.
