 About the CARE RFP
 Around $3 million will be available in 2009 to support community-based
 partnerships to reduce pollution at the local level through the
 Community Action for a Renewed Environment (CARE) program.

 EPA anticipates awarding CARE cooperative agreements in two levels.
 Level I cooperative agreements range from $75,000 to $100,000 and will
 help establish community-based partnerships to develop local
 environmental priorities. Level II awards, ranging from $150,000 to
 $300,000 each, will support communities which have established
 broad-based partnerships, have identified the priority toxic risks in
 the community, and are prepared to measure results, implement risk
 reduction activities, and become self-sustaining. In 2008, $2.7 million
 in cooperative agreements were made available to more than 18
 communities through the CARE program, a community-based,
 community-driven program that builds partnerships to help the public
 understand and reduce toxic risks from numerous sources. Examples of
 projects include addressing abandoned, contaminated industrial and
 residential properties in Gary, Ind., dealing with agriculture-related
 toxics in Yakima County, Wash., and reducing air emissions from diesel
 trucks and buses in Woonsocket, R.I. Since 2005, the grants to reduce
 toxics in the environment have reached over 60 communities in over 30

 Applications for the CARE grants are due March 16, 2009. Eligible
 applicants include county and local governments, tribes, non-profit
 organizations and universities. EPA will conduct three conference
 calls, Feb. 3, 24 and 27, for prospective applicants to ask questions
 about the application process.

 Additional information about the CARE program, previous cooperative
 agreement recipients, and applying for the 2009 grants is available at:
