EPA Requests Applications for Healthcare Provider Pesticide Training Projects (May 2017)

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is seeking applications to establish a program that will better educate the medical community on how to identify and treat pesticide-related health issues. EPA is taking this action to create a better educated community of physicians and nurses that will be equipped to identify signs of pesticide poisoning and treat symptoms.


EPA plans to spend $500,000 per year over the course of five years on this new program. The Agency will award one applicant a cooperative agreement, which will allow for the development of activities and materials including training, creation of relevant tools and resources, technical assistance, and development of a marketing plan to raise awareness and grow support for the program.

Applications must be submitted electronically through Grants.gov by July 20, 2017. If applicants do not have the technical capability to apply electronically, the applicant must request to submit their application materials by contacting OGDWaivers@epa.gov or mailing the submission to a specified address. This must be done at least 15 calendar days prior to the submission deadline.
