The primary focus of these grants is to develop/refine state/tribal wetland programs. In this Request for Applications (RFA) the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is soliciting applications from eligible applicants to develop or refine tribal wetland programs. Tribes and intertribal consortia are eligible to apply under this announcement.

National Tribal Air Association Operations

EPA's Office of Air and Radiation (EPA/OAR) is seeking applications from eligible entities to provide comprehensive air quality policy and regulatory analysis including support and national coordination activities to assist tribes in understanding, participating in and responding to EPA/OAR's policy and regulatory activities. EPA anticipates awarding approximately $1,005,000 over three years. EPA anticipates awarding up to one cooperative agreement from this announcement, subject to availability of funds, the quality of applications received, and other applicable considerations.

Maritime Energy Conservation or Efficiency Pilot/Demonstration Project RFP

The Maritime Administration, Office of Environment is issuing this request for proposals (RFP) for projects that demonstrate shipboard energy conservation or efficiency measures.

Background: Over the past several years, the Maritime Administration (MARAD) has been partnering with government agencies, industry, and academia on efforts to reduce vessel and port emissions, as well as efforts to support the use of alternative fuel and energy sources. Currently, MARAD would like to focus on exploring and supporting proposals focused on shipboard energy efficiency and conservation.
