The EPA has also stipulated that they will give priority to project proposals who can specifically enumerate their goals and objectives, and simultaneously state various techniques and strategies for ensuring that those outcomes and objectives will be realized in a timely and cost-effective manner.

In the context of the program, EPA has given new an exclusive definition of the terms output and outcome. An output is an activity, effort, and/or associated work product that is closely related to an environmental goal or objective that will be produced or provided over a specific period of time or by a specific date.

On the other hand, an outcome refers to an appropriate environmental result, effect or consequence that will occur from carrying out an environmental program or activity that is closely associated to an environmental or programmatic goal or objective.

For each proposal, the EPA strongly recommends that the applicants be very straight-forward and meticulous in setting their project's desired outcome and output.

In order to support the initiatives of this program, the EPA is set to administer funds in the amount of $5,847,000 for the fiscal year 2012.

The institutions and organizations who will be deemed eligible to participate in this program are the following:

a) State, local government agencies, districts, and councils;

b) Regional water pollution control agencies and entities;

c) State coastal zone management agencies;

d) Public and private universities and colleges; and

e) Public or private non-governmental, non-profit institutions.
