Frequent Questions

G1: How does the RFA application process work? Is it a reimbursement program or up-front funding?

EPA will provide payments to successful applicants under procedures described in 2 CFR 200. Essentially, the Agency will pay recipients for eligible and allowable costs in a manner that minimizes the length of time between when the recipient incurs the costs and the payment to the recipient. This is the usual method of reimbursing colleges that receive federal financial assistance. The Agency will not provide an “up front” lump sum payment to the recipient that bears no relationship to actual costs incurred.
