Chemical Emergency Preparedness and Prevention (CEPP) Technical Assistance Grants Program

Published on AidPage by IDILOGIC on Jun 24, 2005

Criteria for selecting proposals...

In evaluating State, Local agencies, and Tribal applications for grants under this program, EPA will consider the following factors: (1) Potential Benefit to the chosen geographic area, State, Local agencies or Tribe. Full or partial delegation of the 112(r) program is considered. The projects should build State or Tribal, and local capabilities. (2) Technical Soundness for addressing the identified problems and feasibility of implementation. (3) Priority Need must be demonstrated by State, Local agency, or Tribal applicants for assistance. Willingness to implement or support activities to implement the 112(r) program is considered. Determination of this priority need will consider, to the extent feasible, the extent to which chemical accidents pose a risk to the community within the State or Tribe. Risk factors include high population, high industrial concentration, natural hazards (e.g., earthquake zones), accident history, and existing preparedness, prevention and response capabilities. EPA will favorably consider grants that concentrate on implementation activities related to the 112(r)program.
