Sustainable community grants

Federal Register: July 1, 1999

Sustainable Development Challenge Grant Program

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Solicitation of proposals for FY 1999/2000.

SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is soliciting proposals for
the combined FY 1999/2000 Sustainable Development Challenge Grant (SDCG)
program, one of President Clinton's ``high priority actions described in the
March 16, 1995 report, ``Reinventing Environmental Regulation.'' EPA also is
soliciting comments on the SDCG program's overall design. The EPA anticipates
that approximately $9.4 million will be available for the SDCG program in FY
1999/2000. This includes $4.7 million already authorized by Congress for FY
1999 and an additional $4.7 million requested for the program in the
President's FY 2000 Budget Request and subject to Congressional authorization.

The SDCG program challenges communities to invest in a sustainable future that
links environmental protection, economic prosperity and community well-being.
It provides an opportunity to develop place-based approaches to problem solving
that can be replicated in other communities.

The SDCG program strongly encourages community members, business and government
entities to work cooperatively to develop flexible, locally-oriented approaches
that link place-based environmental management and quality of life activities
with sustainable development and revitalization.

These grants are intended to catalyze community-based projects to promote
environmentally and economically sustainable development; build partnerships
which increase a community's capacity to take steps that will ensure the
long-term health of ecosystems and humans, economic vitality, and community
well- being; and leverage public and private investments to enhance
environmental quality by enabling community efforts to continue beyond the
period of EPA funding.

EPA will select projects on a competitive basis using the criteria outlined in
the section titled ``SDCG Program Criteria.''

Applicants may compete for funding from EPA in two ranges for FY 1999/2000:
(1) Requesting $30,000 to $100,000 with a total project budget of $125,000 or
less and
(2) requesting between $100,001 and $250,000 with no limit on the total project
budget amount.

Proposals will compete with other proposals in the same range (i.e., a proposal
for $30,000-$100,000 will not compete with a proposal requesting

Applicants in each category are required to provide a minimum 20% match from
non- federal funding sources.
