Frequent Questions

A10: This cooperative agreement opportunity would have been extremely useful to us to develop and implement this program but states are not eligible to apply. Do you foresee any similar funding opportunities for which states will be eligible?

As you state in your e-mail message, in accordance with Section III.A of the competitive announcement, states are not eligible to apply for the funding.  Unfortunately, EPA cannot speculate regarding any future grant opportunities for assisting private well owners for which states would be eligible to apply.  This is EPA’s fourth round of competitive funding for small system training and technical assistance grants, and Congress has stipulated in each case that eligibility is limited to non-profit organizations.  You may wish to monitor the Grants.gov web site in the future to see if there are any other grant competitions that may include states as eligible applicants.
