Center candidates will be evaluated initially against the following criteria: impact on health and the environment; patterns of noncompliance; assessment that compliance assistance is an appropriate approach to use; predominately involves or affects small businesses; the problem or issue is prevalent nationally; impact of new environmental regulations; subject to multiple environmental statutes/regulations; and not currently supported by an existing compliance assistance program. Once these threshold criteria have been met, an additional criterion will be applied: willingness of a sector or third-party organization to partner with EPA. At this time, EPA is considering the following sectors for new Center development: (1) Food processing (producers of meat products, seafood, dairy, fruits, oils, flour, vegetables, baked goods, etc.); or (2) marinas /boatbuilding (boat building, repair, servicing, docks, fueling). EPA invites feedback from interested parties on these and other possible candidates for Center development. Specifically, EPA is interested in feedback on Center development for the food processing and marina/ boatbuilding sectors. The above criterion should be considered in your evaluation and proposal of sector, geographic, or topical candidates. Pursuant to EPA’s Grants Competition Policy that went into effect October 1, 2002, EPA will compete any assistance agreement that will be provided to support new Center development in FY 2007. Interested parties should communicate their suggestions regarding new sectors, geographical areas or topical issues for Center development to EPA by letter or e-mail to the contact listed below.
