Environmental Monitoring for Public Access and Community Tracking (EMPACT) Grants Program Announced information from the web site cited below. EPA's Office of Research and Development (ORD) has announced a grant competition as part of a new program called Environmental Monitoring for Public Access and Community Tracking (EMPACT). The request for applications (RFA) is available on EPA's National Center for Environmental Research and Quality Assurance (NCERQA) homepage at: http://es.epa.gov/ncerqa/rfa/empact.html. The intent is to establish pilot programs in a limited number of eligible cities. The city pilots will emphasize active partnerships between local and state governments, research institutions, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), the private sector, and the Federal Government to provide timely environmental information to the public. Listed as an additional consideration in awarding grants is a community-based approach, since the goals of community-based environmental protection are to: enhance the citizen's understanding of environmental issues, build the capacity for communities to address these issues, develop tools, information, and data to assist communities in addressing environmental problems, and ensure communities' access to credible scientific information. Approximately $3.5 million will be made available for this competition, with a projected award range from $250,000 to a maximum of $600,000 over the total life of the project, and a total project duration of 12 to 24 months. The opening date was January 21, 1998. Letters of Intent are due March 2, 1998 and full applications May 15, 1998. More information is available on the web site or by contacting Dr. Barbara Karn at 202-564-6824 or email@example.com or Mr. Myles Morse at 202-564-6827 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Both are with EPA's Environmental Engineering Research Division.
