pollution from air, water and/or land prior to performing recycling, reuse or clean up.



The P2 grant program funds grants and cooperative agreements that provide pollution prevention technical assistance services and/or training to businesses.

The PPIN grant program funds grants and cooperative agreements through a national network of Pollution Prevention Resource Exchange (P2Rx) Centers.

The Centers work to deliver pollution prevention information, resources and tools to state technical assistance providers, businesses and industry.

Funding Priorities for FY 2015:

1.

To help businesses adopt P2 techniques into day-to-day operations to reduce or eliminate harmful pollutants from entering the air, water or land;

2.

To encourage education and training in P2/source reduction techniques and applications; and

3.

Support P2 information sharing among State and local technical assistance programs, businesses, and industry.

Funding priorities in 2016:

1.

To help businesses adopt P2 techniques into day-to-day operations to reduce or eliminate harmful pollutants from entering the air, water or land;

2.

To encourage education and training in P2/source reduction techniques and applications through applying one or more of the P2 Program's National Emphasis Areas - 1) Climate Change Mitigation/Prevention of Greenhouse Gas Emissions; 2) Food Manufacturing and Processing; and 3) State or Community Approaches to Hazardous Materials Source Reduction; and

3.

Support P2 information sharing among State and local technical assistance programs, businesses, and industry.

Funding Priority - Fiscal Year 2017:

1.

To help businesses adopt P2 techniques into day-to-day operations to reduce or eliminate harmful pollutants from entering the air, water or land; 2.

To encourage education and/or training in P2/source reduction techniques by adopting one or more of the P2 Program's National Emphasis Areas (NEAs).

NEAs will be described in anticipated grant solicitation announcements.

3.

To support P2 information sharing among States, federally-recognized tribes, local technical assistance programs, businesses, and industry.
Examples of Funded Projects

Fiscal Year 2016: The following are examples of P2 grants supporting activities in FY 2016 and FY 2017.

P2 Grant: EPA funded amount: $64,940 in FY 2016 and $64,140 in FY 2017.

The grant recipient will evaluate above-ground storage tanks (ASTs) for pollution prevention and risk preparedness within high risk, flood-prone coastal communities due to both anticipated sea level rise and flooding from various storm events.

The scope of the study will cover coastal communities in Rhode Island.

Facilities in these areas will be initially identified using information housed within the grant recipient?s AST database.

All information gathering will be driven by direct observation and using environmentally-based tools provide accuracy for the project.

All relevant information will be integrated into a geographic information system.

It is anticipated the grant recipient will preform five to ten on-site assessments.

P2 Grant: EPA funded amount: $104,103 in FY 2016 and $92,920 in FY 2017.

The grant recipient will develop a capacity-building project to encourage local municipalities to serve as educators and supporters of small businesses, helping the businesses institute best management practices to reduce use and storage of toxic materials and improve worker safety, profitability, and the safety of surrounding properties and neighborhoods.

The grant recipient will target three local jurisdictions containing large numbers of small businesses in high flood-risk areas and demonstrating diverse types of population density and economic and demographic profiles.

P2 Grant: EPA funded amount: $80,000 in FY 2016 and $80,000 in FY 2017.

The grant recipient will design, produce and conduct four half-day workshops geared to Kentucky EXCEL members, Kentucky Pollution Prevention Center program participants, organizations and industries.

The events will be free for participants and will be held in multiple locations to facilitate participation across the state and to target specific sectors and regions.

The workshops will address source reduction and money savings for small businesses, efficient steam generation to realize greenhouse gas reductions, strategies for reductions in peak demand energy use and energy efficiency opportunities for facilities.

The recipient will also develop a series of tools and resources for the workshops to help train participants.

The tools and resources are: 1) Spreadsheets: Energy Profile and Cost Summary, Energy Report Card, Utility Bill Analysis Tracker; 2) Calculators: Energy Use Intensity Comparison, Thermostat Savings, Lighting Retrofit Recommendations Savings; 3) Surveys for: lighting, HVAC Systems, motors; and, 4) tip sheets for: lighting, HVAC systems, motors, installing and assessing building envelopes, and achieving compressed air energy savings.

Post-workshop evaluation and additional one-to-one technical assistance will be provided by the grant recipient to participants on-demand and through a series of scheduled webinars.

P2 Grant: EPA funded amount: $109,330 in FY 2016 and $108,957 in FY 2017.

The grant recipient will provide technical assistance to chemical and food industry manufacturers participating in Louisiana?s Economy, Energy and Environment (E3) program - Value Louisiana.

The assistance to manufacturers will include: 1) on-site assessments for businesses that address ways and means for reducing chemical usage, energy and water use, 2) sponsoring and facilitating educational, environmental workshops and trainings in partnership with the Zero Waste Network, 3) increasing the amount of member participation in Value Louisiana and the Louisiana Chemical Manufacturing Imitative, and 4) leveraging faculty research to support source reduction opportunities and innovation for manufacturers.

P2 Grant: EPA funded amount: $134,372 in FY 2016 and $162,860 in FY 2017.

The grant recipient will work to improve the environmental performance of industrial facilities and businesses by conducting 44 confidential site assessments focused on Iowa?s greenhouse gas emitters, food manufacturers, and hospitals and chemical manufacturers that use large quantities of water or energy.

The P2 assessments aim to generate cost-saving and environmental improvement recommendations for facilities with assistance from pollution prevention engineers or a P2 intern.

The grant recipient will report aggregated environmental outcomes and the sectors served by the project.

In particular, the grant recipient anticipates P2 assistance will reduce energy demand by increasing the implementation of energy efficiency (e.g., lighting retrofits, boiler and compressor efficiency, etc.) and heat recovery P2 strategies throughout production processes; reduce the amount of water use for production and mechanical operation by increasing water conservation; reducing effluent pollutant loadings and wastewater flows to onsite treatment facilities and municipal POTWs ? resulting in lower operation and maintenance costs; and reduce or eliminate toxics use and waste generation through less toxic alternatives and more efficient usage.

Uses and Use Restrictions

Funding under the P2 and PPIN grant programs is supported through Congressional appropriation.

The programs support P2 projects that address the transfer of potentially harmful pollutants across all environmental media: air, water, and land.

The programs also support the establishment and expansion of State and Tribal P2 programs under various topic areas, some which are: industrial toxics, agriculture, energy and water conservation, and transportation.

More specifically, the P2 grant program supports P2 approaches and methodologies that focus on: institutionalizing P2 as an environmental management method, helping businesses establish prevention goals, providing on-site technical assistance or training to businesses, supporting outreach and research endeavors, and supporting data collection and analysis to curb environmental inefficiencies while increasing awareness of P2.

Under the PPIN program, EPA supports projects that help to: coordinate work among State and local technical assistance providers, disseminate P2 information, offer training to State and local technical assistance providers, businesses, and industry, promote new and innovative P2 technologies, and take a broad reading of what P2 activities are occurring across the nation in order to minimize duplication of effort.

The P2 and PPIN grant programs do not support projects that focus on recycling, reuse, waste removal or any activity which alters the physical, chemical, or biological characteristics or the volume of a hazardous substance, pollutant, or contaminant through a process or activity which is not integral to and necessary for the production of a product or essential to providing a service.

For more information, refer to PPA Section 6603 and 40 CFR Sections 35.343 and 35.662. Grant recipients and sub-recipients are encouraged to adopt and enforce policies that ban text messaging while driving company-owned or -rented vehicles or government-owned vehicles, or while driving privately-owned vehicles when on official government business or when performing any work for or on behalf of the government.

Grant recipients and sub-recipients are encouraged to conduct initiatives of the type described in section 3(a) of the Federal Leadership on Reducing Text Messaging While Driving Executive Order that was signed on October 1, 2009. Assistance agreement awards under this program may involve or relate to geospatial information.

Assistance Considerations

Formula and Matching Requirements

Statutory Formula: Title Pollution Prevention Act of 1990. The statutory formula for P2 and PPIN grants is authorized by the Pollution Prevention Act of 1990. Organizations receiving grant funds through the P2 and PPIN grant programs are required to match federal funds by at least 50 percent. The federal government will provide half of the total allowable cost of the project, and the state will provide the other half. Thus, a federal grant of $100,000 would support a total allowable project cost of $200,000, with the state providing the remaining half equal to $100,000. State contributions may include: dollars, in kind goods and services, and/or third party contributions. In a detailed budget, the use of the matching funds must be documented. The match requirement may be applied at the time of award or at specified intervals during the project period. The grant applicant must document in the itemized budget plan the type of match to be applied and how it will be used. The grant project officer in the Region or Headquarters will monitor the grant recipient's compliance. If the match requirement is not met or is not applied at specified intervals during the project period, federal funding will cease and the recipient will be held liable for all incurred costs. With concern to P2 grants only: If a tribe or intertribal consortium is selected for an award and their workplan will be included in a performance partnership grant (PPG), then the required tribal match will be reduced to 5% as it applies to the total allowable P2 project cost. This reduction in match will be applied to the first two years of the PPG. After two years, the EPA Regional Administrator is required to determine through objective assessment whether the tribe or intertribal consortium still meets the socioeconomic needs test to warrant keeping the cost share at 5 percent. Matching Requirements: Organizations receiving grant funds through the P2 and PPIN grant programs are required to match federal funds by at least 50 percent. The federal government will provide half of the total allowable cost of the project, and the state will provide the other half. Thus, a federal grant of $100,000 would support a total allowable project cost of $200,000, with the state providing the remaining half equal to $100,000. State contributions may include: dollars, in kind goods and services, and/or third party contributions. In a detailed budget, the use of the matching funds must be documented. The match requirement may be applied at the time of award or at specified intervals during the project period. The grant applicant must document in the itemized budget plan the type of match to be applied and how it will be used. The grant project officer in the Region or Headquarters will monitor the grant recipient's compliance. If the match requirement is not met or is not applied at specified intervals during the project period, federal funding will cease and the recipient will be held liable for all incurred costs. With concern to P2 grants only: If a tribe or intertribal consortium is selected for an award and their workplan will be included in a performance partnership grant (PPG), then the required tribal match will be reduced to 5% as it applies to the total allowable P2 project cost. This reduction in match will be applied to the first two years of the PPG. After two years, the EPA Regional Administrator is required to determine through objective assessment whether the tribe or intertribal consortium still meets the socioeconomic needs test to warrant keeping the cost share at 5 percent. This program does not have MOE requirements.

Length and Time Phasing of Assistance

From FY 2016 through FY 2017,grant programs under this CFDA will award grants or cooperative agreements covering a funding period of two years. Funds will be released by a letter of credit. See the following for information on how assistance is awarded/released: Financial assistance under the P2 and PPIN grant programs is provided in the form of a grant or a cooperative agreement issued as a letter of credit by the federal government to the eligible grantee.

Post Assistance Requirements

Reports

EPA includes reporting requirements for grants and cooperative agreements in the terms and conditions of the agreements.

Agreements may require interim and final progress reports, and expenditure/financial, equipment and invention reports.

Progress reports are generally required at least semi-annually.

Specific reporting requirement are also identified in the Grant Regulations at 2 CFR 200 and 1500, as applicable.

Program reports are required under this program.

The P2 and PPIN grant programs require grantees to submit budget information to the grant porject officer.

The information should be included in the grantees' semi-annual progress report.

Organizations that are awarded grants will be required to submit semi-annual progress reports during the life of the project to the grant project officer.

The report should summarize funds expended, tasks accomplished, and results achieved to date.

A final technical report is also required at the end of the grant/cooperative agreement.

The final technical report should explain the prospect for continuation, further development of the pollution prevention effort, and offer a project evaluation.

The P2 and PPIN grant programs require the grantee to submit semi-annual progress reports to the grant project officer.

The report should explain the work executed under the project(s), whether or not the project's milestones were achieved, and the staff and budget plan for any remaining work.

Expenditure reports are required at the end of the grant/cooperative agreement.

The grantee should submit this information to the grant project officer when submitting their final technical report.

If the grantee proposes work that involves gathering, measuring, or tracking environmental data, the grantee is required to report its environmental performance to EPA.

The information should be provided in the grantees' semi-annual progress report and final technical report.

The reports should be submitted to the grant project officer.

Audits

In accordance with the provisions of 2 CFR 200, Subpart F - Audit Requirements, non-Federal entities that expend financial assistance of $750,000 or more in Federal awards will have a single or a program-specific audit conducted for that year. Non-Federal entities that expend less than $750,000 a year in Federal awards are exempt from Federal audit requirements for that year, except as noted in 2 CFR 200.503. Grants and cooperative agreements are subject to inspections and audits by the Comptroller General of the United States, the EPA Office of Inspector General, other EPA staff, or any authorized representative of the Federal government. Reviews by the EPA Project Officer and the Grants Specialist may occur each year. In accordance with the provisions of 2 CFR 200, Subpart F - Audit Requirements, non-federal entities that expend $750,000 or more in a year in Federal awards shall have a single or a program specific audit conducted for that year. Non-federal entities that expend less than $750,000 a year in Federal awards are exempt from Federal audit requirements for that year, except as noted in 2 CFR 200.503.

Records

Financial records, including all documents to support entries on accounting records to substantiate charges to each grant, must be kept available to personnel authorized to examine EPA grant accounts. All records must be maintained for three years from the date of submission of the annual financial status report. If questions still remain, such as those raised as a result of an audit, related records should be retained until the matter is completely resolved.
