How To Apply For Environmental Grants In 2016
The first step is obvious to determine eligibility. You start by opening up the “Link to Full Announcement” in order to fully understand whether you are eligible to apply to any number of 2016 environmental grants. For example, you will need to carefully any of the grants currently available, including the 2016 Diesel Retrofit Grant, which was open for bids in March of this year. After you have CAREFULLY read the requirements, then you may proceed to the next step.
Start The Application Process
The next step is to start the application process, beginning with registering with Grants.gov. For environmental grants 2016 has been a good year, and as long as you have experience you should have no trouble navigating the interface. After registering, you need to be aware of the closing date, the requirements and the criteria for a successful application. You also need to be aware of what the EPA can and cannot do for you. First of all, they cannot help you with your application in any way shape or form. This is why we noted the importance of experience or a well-grounded education at the beginning of this piece. Moreover, they cannot write or review your application for you nor they can they give any preference to you over another applicant. That is why it is up to you to provide the best application possible.
Determine If Your Government Grant Will Require A Cost Share Analysis
The next important step in the process is to determine if all of the financial aid is provided or if you are expected to provide for some of the costs yourself. For example, the 2016 South FL Initiative does not have a designated requirement for a cost share, but others might.
As always, knowledge is power. Study the EPA Grant process thoroughly, and understand that if you don’t get it the first time the experts with the EPA will be happy to give you plenty of constructive feedback in order to ensure all of your future EPA endeavors are successful!
