the development and delivery of pollution prevention (P2) information resources, tools, training and related services to meet the needs of businesses and technical assistance providers working in one or more of the three P2 national emphasis areas (NEAs).

The three areas referred to as the NEAs are:
1) climate change mitigation/prevention of greenhouse gas emissions, 2) pollution prevention practices in the food manufacturing and processing sector, and 3) state or community approaches to hazardous materials source reduction.

Applicants must demonstrate how their activities increase the adoption of pollution prevention practices by reporting outcome measures.

Pollution prevention refers to practices that:
1) reduce or eliminate the creation of pollutants through increased efficiency in the use of raw materials, energy, water, or other resources; or 2) reduce the amount of hazardous substance, pollutant or contaminate entering any waste stream or released to the environment.

The cooperative agreements will be issued and managed through EPA’s regional P2 programs.

The amount of grant funding released each year is dependent upon Congressional appropriation and the quality of proposals received.
