Frequent Questions

H05: We are planning to apply for this grant and would like to know more about the trainees. If this a cooperative agreement, how can we get the contact information for the trainees?

Obtaining contact information for trainees will be the responsibility of the successful applicant. EPA will evaluate your approach to identifying potential trainees and conducting outreach to potential trainees under the “National Priority Area” and ”Providing Training and Technical Assistance on a National Basis” described in section V.A. of the Request for Applications. Additionally, section I.B., "National Priority Areas" states: " Applicants should also describe a process whereby they will consult with the appropriate regulatory authority (such as the state or territorial primacy agency or EPA regional direct implementation coordinator) in each state or territory in which the assistance is to be expended or otherwise made available prior to providing training and technical assistance in that state or territory.  In particular, applicants should indicate how they will work with the state, territory or EPA to identify the systems in greatest need of assistance; how they will keep those agencies, the EPA grant project officer and appropriate EPA regional coordinators informed regarding the assistance provided; and how they will document these results.”
The state or territorial agencies, in addition to assisting with prioritizing the systems in greatest need, should be able to help provide the successful applicant with contact information for those systems.
