Frequent Questions

H08: Please explain why proposed projects that range from $1.178 million to $8 million all have a 12 page limit for the applications?

As explained in Section V.B. of the Request for Applications (RFA), the eligible applications are reviewed by panels comprised of EPA staff, based on the evaluation criteria.  The panel members review each application in great detail, and carefully document the results of their evaluation for each selection criterion.  The 12-page application limit attempts to strike a balance between allowing applicants to adequately describe their approach, while limiting the number of pages so that panel members can provide adequate analysis and consideration of each application within the timeframe available for the review and evaluation process.  A 10- to 12- page limit is commonly used for EPA competitions, regardless of the level of funding available.
