EPA/600/F-95/002

The United States Environmental Protection Agency Announces the
Availability of 1995 Grants for Research on Reducing Uncertainty in Risk
Assessment and Improving Risk Reduction
Approaches

APPLICATION SUBMISSION CLOSING DATE: APRIL 17, 1995

Introduction

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) invites research grant
applications in four areas of special interest to its mission:

¯ Human health risk assessment

¯ Indoor air quality in large office buildings

¯ Air pollutants (particulate matter, tropospheric ozone, and toxics)

¯ Regional hydrologic vulnerability to global climate change

This invitation provides relevant background information, summarizes EPA
interests in the four topic areas, and describes the application and review
process.

This solicitation seeks proposals that may include a range of innovative
research approaches, from modeling to data analysis and observational and
experimental approaches, singly or in combination. Proposals are encouraged
without regard to specific location of any proposed hydrologic regional
setting but should reflect the goal to reduce uncertainties in watershed
hydrology as influenced by concerns about vulnerabilities to climate
change.

Approximately $1.0 million will be available from fiscal year 1995 funds. A
typical project will be supported for a period of up to 3 years at $150,000
per year.

The Application

Proposed projects must be research designed to advance the state of
knowledge in the indicated areas of environmental science and technology.
Applications will not be accepted for routine monitoring, state-of-the-art
or market surveys, literature reviews, development or
commercialization of proven concepts, or for the preparation of materials
and documents, including process designs or instruction manuals.

Application forms and instructions are available in the EPA Research Grants
Application Kit. Interested investigators should review the materials in
this kit before preparing an application for assistance. The kits can be
obtained at the following address:

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
