Targeted Watersheds Grants Program: Urban Watershed Capacity Building Grant

The U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) anticipates awarding one cooperative agreement to an eligible entity to manage an Urban Watershed Capacity Building Grant under the Targeted Watershed Grants (TWG) Program.

Specifically, EPA is soliciting proposals from eligible applicants that


address the following two project components:
(1) manage a competitive urban watershed subaward program; and (2) provide urban watershed technical services to subawardees.

For the subaward program, the applicant will:
i) prepare and advertise a competitive Request for Proposals (RFP), establish review criteria for evaluating and selecting subaward proposals, and make subawards to support urban watershed capacity building projects for activities that lead to environmental, public health, and related socioeconomic benefits to the surrounding communities and their residents; ii) oversee and monitor subawardees for successful completion of the urban watershed capacity building projects; and iii) qualitatively and quantitatively measure and report on the environmental results of the urban watershed capacity building projects accomplished through the subawards.

The urban watershed subaward program proposed by the applicant must be on a national scale by allowing for subaward proposals for capacity building projects within urban areas from across the 50 United States, Tribal Lands, Puerto Rico, and the U. S. Territories.

For the urban watershed technical services, the applicant will provide outreach and technical support to subawardees to broaden participation in urban watershed capacity building projects.

The statutory authority for this announcement is the 2007 Appropriations, H.J.


20 (P.L.

110-5)) for Targeted Watershed Grants.
