Source Reduction Assistance

Under this CFDA announcement, EPA administers the Source Reduction Assistance (SRA) grant program.

The goal of the SRA program is to provide grants to support pollution prevention (P2), source reduction and/or resource conservation activities.

For purposes of this grant program, P2 is defined
as any practice which reduces or eliminates the creation of pollutants through: increased efficiency in the use of raw materials, energy, water, or other resources, or protection of natural resources by conservation activities.

EPA is interested in funding projects which assist in reducing hazardous substances, pollutants, or contaminants entering waste streams or otherwise released into the environment (including fugitive emissions) prior to recycling, treatment, or disposal.

Grant activities may involve, but are not limited to the following: equipment or technology modifications, process or procedure modifications, reformulation or redesign of products, substitution of raw materials, training, inventory control, etc.

EPA is also interested in funding an organization to serve as a national coordinator of P2 technical services, information, resources, tools and training to meet the needs of businesses and state and tribal technical assistance providers (TAPs).

Activities would also include strengthening collaboration among the state and tribal technical assistance providers, developing and evaluating P2 information and case studies, tools and products, amplifying P2 approaches and case studies, and marketing P2 information and services nationally.



Fiscal Year 2016: To support source reduction, pollution prevention and resource conservation activities that comply with the statutory authorities of the Clean Air Act, Section 103(b), as amended; Clean Water Act, Section 104(b)(3), as amended; Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act, Section 20, as amended; Safe Drinking Water Act, Section 1442 (a)(1) and (c), as amended; Solid Waste Disposal Act, Section 8001(a), as amended; and the Toxic Substances Control Act, Section 10, as amended.



Fiscal Year 2017: SRA assistance agreements must carry out activities within the terms of EPA's statutory authorities.

The statutes authorize the agency to award grants or cooperative agreements using methods of: research, investigations, experiments, education, training, surveys, studies and/or demonstration of innovative techniques.

SRA assistance agreement activities must relate to gathering or transferring information or advancing awareness.

Proposals must emphasize this 'learning' concept, as opposed to 'fixing' an environmental problem using a well-established method.

For projects that will support demonstration activity, the project must involve new or experimental technologies, methods, or approaches, where the results of the project will be disseminated so that others can benefit from the knowledge gained in the demonstration project.

A project that is accomplished through the performance of routine, traditional, or established practices, or a project that is simply intended to carry out a task rather than transfer information or advance the state of knowledge, however worthwhile the project might be, is not a demonstration.

The applicant must clearly explain in the proposal how the pollution prevention technologies, methods, or approaches used are new or experimental and how the project otherwise meets the requirements of a demonstration as described in the applicable RFP.

If your project uses technologies, methods or approaches that have been used previously in other geographic areas and/or business sectors, then your proposal must include an explanation as to how your demonstration project is different from such prior projects and is a true demonstration.

The applicant must also explain what will be learned in the industry from the demonstration project.

If your project is truly a demonstration and complies with other eligibility factors then it will be considered for funding.



Proposals that principally support recycling, clean-up, treatment, disposal and/or energy recovery efforts (e.g., incinerating solid waste to generate electricity) will not be considered for funding.

Funding Priority - Fiscal Year 2018: SRA assistance agreements must carry out activities within the terms of EPA's statutory authorities.

Uses and Use Restrictions

EPA is interested in supporting P2, source reduction and resource conservation projects that will provide an overall benefit to the environment by preventing pollutants at the source.

Source reduction projects can include but are not limited to: 1) improving facility and institutional operations that reduce pollutant use and exposure, 2) reformulating and procuring products to reduce toxic constituents, 3) providing direct technical assistance to businesses and other organizations, 4) encouraging green product design and manufacturing, 5) conducting outreach, 6) collecting and analyzing P2 data, and 7) integrating P2 concepts into state, regional and tribal environmental multimedia programs.

Grant activities must be consistent with the grant guidelines of the statutory authorities listed for this program.

The statutory authorities are listed in this CFDA announcement and in the applicable grant solicitations.

The statutes authorize EPA to award assistance agreements to support the following activities: 'research, investigations, experiments, education/training, demonstrations of new or innovative techniques, surveys and studies.' These activities relate generally to the gathering or transferring of information or advancing knowledge.

Grant proposals should emphasize this 'learning' concept, as opposed to 'fixing' an environmental problem using a well-established method.

For example, a proposal to install a more energy efficient heating system in the applicant's facility in order to conserve energy, would not, in itself fall within research, studies, demonstrations and would be viewed as a well-established solution not eligible for grant funding.

All activities in the applicant's proposal must be eligible under one or more of the statutory authorities listed. Assistance agreement awards under this program may involve or relate to geospatial information.

Further information regarding geospatial information may be obtained by viewing the following website: http://geodata.epa.gov. 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.

Generally this program makes Federal awards on a discretionary basis.

For further information, please contact the Headquarters or regional office.
