On May 9, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Office of Wastewater Management announced that it is requesting letters of interest from communities interested in technical support for developing and implementing integrated plans. Integrated planning is a prioritized approach to meeting Clean Water Act requirements for municipal wastewater and stormwater management. The total value of the EPA assistance available in 2014 is approximately $335,000, and EPA anticipates providing assistance to five communities. If additional funding becomes available, EPA may return to the applicant pool identified through this request to select additional communities. Applicants may submit only one letter of interest and may apply for project periods of up to nine months. Submit letters of interest to IP_Tech_Assistance@epa.gov to the attention of Kevin Weiss no later than June 27, 2014, 5:00 p.m. EST.
