Wetland Program Development Grants (WPDGs) assist state, tribal, local government (S/T/LG) agencies and interstate/intertribal entities in developing or refining state/tribal/local programs that protect, manage, and restore wetlands. The primary focus of these grants is to develop/refine tribal wetland programs. In this Request for Applications (RFA) the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is soliciting applications from eligible applicants to develop or refine tribal wetland programs as described in Section I, FUNDING OPPORTUNITY DESCRIPTION. Tribes and intertribal consortia are eligible to apply under this announcement. Non-profit organizations, states, and interstate organizations are not eligible to compete under this RFA.
Under this announcement, as is more fully explained in Section I, there will be two separate applicant tracks for eligible applicants. Eligible tribes can submit proposals under either Track One or Track Two, while eligible intertribal consortia can only submit proposals under Track Two. Applicants under each track will only compete for awards against other applicants in their track. See Section V of the announcement for further information. EPA has the discretion to contact the applicant if necessary to discuss the most appropriate track for their proposal. Current Closing Date for Applications: January 15, 2021.
