The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is soliciting proposals for
the FY98 Sustainable Development Challenge Grant program. A total of
$5 million is available for this program, which encourages partnering
among community members, business and government entities to work
cooperatively to develop flexible, locally-oriented approaches that
link place-based environmental management and quality of life
activities with sustainable development and revitalization.

Applicants may compete for funding from EPA in two ranges for
FY-1998: 1) requesting $50,000 or less, and 2) requesting between
$50,001 and $200,000. Proposals will compete with other proposals in
the same range (i.e. a proposal for $50,000 will not compete with a
proposal for $200,000). Applicants in each category are required to
provide a minimum of 20% match from non-federal funding sources.
