The U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is accepting proposals from federally recognized Tribal governments and Tribal consortia located within Region 5 including Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, or Wisconsin.
The CAA Amendments of 1990 established two separate funding mechanisms
to assist Tribes in addressing air pollution and prevention activities within their Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) approved jurisdictional boundaries, Section 103 (short-term projects) and Section 105 (long-term program support).
While the assistance agreements activities described in this RFP under Section 105 of the CAA are exempt from the competition under Section 6. c.
(1) of EPA?s, ?Policy for Competition Under Assistance Agreements? (EPA Order 570 0. 5A1), the Agency has decided to compete this request for proposals because it expects to receive proposals requesting more funding than is available for these programs this year.
