EPA Solicits Proposals for a Cooperative Agreement to Conduct the National Pesticide Information Center (NPIC)
EPA’s Office of Pesticide Programs is soliciting applications for a cooperative agreement to run the National Pesticide Information Center (NPIC), which provides the public with objective, science-based information on pesticide-related subjects. EPA expects to provide up to $1,000,000 annually, depending on the Agency’s budget, for a total of 5 years (2019-2024).
As in the past, the cooperative agreement will carry out the NPIC through a website, toll-free telephone service and outreach. Trained experts will respond to questions on the risks associated with pesticide use, restrictions on pesticide use, who to contact for regulatory enforcement, and how to report information on incidents. It will also collect information on suspected incidents that callers give voluntarily.
EPA must receive proposals through Grants.gov no later than 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on July 30, 2018. For more information on this Request for Applications, visit https://www.epa.gov/pesticide-worker-sa ... ion-center. To apply, go to grant opportunity EPA-HQ-OPP-2018-001 at Grants.gov.
EPA distributes its OPP Updates to external stakeholders and citizens who have expressed an interest in the Agency's pesticide program activities and decisions. This update service is part of EPA’s continuing effort to improve public access to federal pesticide information.
For general questions about pesticides and pesticide poisoning prevention, contact the National Pesticide Information Center (NPIC) by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by visiting the NPIC website.
