EPA Smart Growth Network Website CFDA 66.611

US EPA's Development, Community and Environment Division (DCED) is seeking proposals for the development and ongoing maintenance of a website serving the Smart Growth Network (SGN). The Smart Growth Network is a nationally recognized coalition of regional and national leadership organizations that have formally endorsed the principles of smart growth. This website will be the SGN’s on-line home. It will provide basic information about each SGN partner organization, and will function as a “one stop shop” for current, timely, cutting edge information on implementing smart growth approaches. It will also feature information resources that have stood the test of time and remain classic references in the smart growth field. The site should be designed to serve a wide variety of stakeholders in the community development process, including citizens, planners, government officials, developers, realtors, public health professionals, and others seeking to improve the economy, environment and public health of their communities. Applications are due by January 12, 2009.

US EPA expects to award one (1) cooperative agreement from this announcement. The initial award for this funding cycle is expected to be approximately $75K, subject to availability of funding within the agency's final FY 09 budget. Funding for future years, in the form of incremental funding, will depend on funding availability, agency priorities, and applicant performance, and is expected to range from $75K to $100K annually. The final proposal selected for award consideration may be negotiated for a project period of up to five years, with a ceiling of approximately $500K for a five-year agreement. Cooperative agreements entail substantial Federal involvement in the project. Substantive involvement may include US EPA review and approval of project scope and annual workplans; participation in and collaboration on various phases of the work; review of all draft and final products; and regular e-mail, phone, and conference calls.

Eligible applicants are states, territories, Indian Tribes, interstate organizations, intrastate organizations, and possessions of the U.S., including the District of Columbia; public and private universities and colleges, hospitals, laboratories, and other public or private nonprofit institutions. Cost-sharing is encouraged, but not required. Only one application per applicant is permitted.
