Cooperative agreements to USA and territories agencies, local governments, nonprofit institutions and organizations, American Indian Tribes, IHEs, hospitals, and laboratories for capacity building projects. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take a month or more to complete. The purpose of the Children’s Healthy Learning Environments Grant Initiative is to provide capacity building to address children’s environmental health in school and childcare settings.
Under this competition, EPA is accepting applications from eligible applicants for projects that build capacity of decision-makers to address children’s environmental health in school and childcare environments. Projects may demonstrate, implement, or expand innovative methods and approaches to prevent and reduce exposures in schools and childcare settings. Capacity building programs eligible for funding under this solicitation should be multi-media (involving multiple environmental health hazards) and holistic (involving multiple stakeholders and built on strong partnerships). For the purposes of this solicitation, schools include public, private, charter, parochial and K-12 schools; childcare settings include early care and education, such as nurseries, preschools, pre-kindergartens, centers, child development programs, Head Start, Early Head Start, and in-home childcare facilities. Decision-makers are those adults who have authority for school or childcare facilities or who control or influence resources used for school or childcare facilities.
While this RFA is intended primarily for capacity building, it may also fund outreach and education as part of capacity building. EPA will consider funding translation of existing materials or the development of new outreach, education, guidance or technical assistance documents only where the applicant demonstrates that there is a need (e.g., that existing quality materials are not available).
For examples of eligible activities, see https://www.epa.gov/sites/production/files/2020-04/documents/epa-oa-ochp-20-01.pdf#page=4.
For Expected Outputs and Outcomes, see https://www.epa.gov/sites/production/files/2020-04/documents/epa-oa-ochp-20-01.pdf#page=6.
The two grants awarded are expected to cover two complementary portions of the United States, such as East/West or two non-overlapping geographic areas in different parts of the U.S. Ideally, grantees will provide impact to multiple schools, childcare centers, and/or school districts in multiple geographic areas (e.g., reaching 7 school districts located within 5 counties or 3 states).
