Pesticide Safety Education Funds Management Program

The U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is soliciting applications to administer a national subaward program supporting pesticide safety education programs with an emphasis on restricted use products (RUPs) for certified pesticide applicators.

PSEPs are generally at universities designated


as Land Grant Universities by the Morrill Act of 186 2. The Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) authorizes EPA to regulate the manufacture, sale, distribution, and use of pesticides.

EPA classifies a pesticide as “restricted use” if it could pose an unreasonable risk to the user, other people, or the environment without added restrictions.

Thus, RUPs are limited to use by, or under the supervision of, a certified applicator.

Because this is a subaward program, the applicant awarded the cooperative agreement will be considered a “passthrough entity” as defined in the Uniform Grant Guidance at 2 CFR Part 20 0. The purpose of this program is to ensure that RUPs are used safely and do not cause unreasonable adverse effects to persons who use them, the public or the environment.

The goal is to enable or increase the capacity of PSEPs to develop programs and materials for persons preparing to become or maintain certified pesticide applicators, who are deemed competent to use RUPs.

Objectives are actions taken to establish and administer a subaward funding program.
