Request for Proposals (RFP)
Reducing the Environmental and Health Impacts of School Siting

This RFP focuses on how state policies and practices affect spending on
school construction and renovation. The purpose of this RFP is to:
-- Identify state policies and practices that may act as a barrier to
smart growth school siting and design solutions;
-- Identify and summarize school siting and design strategies that can
provide localities and states with the flexibility to overcome these
barriers, and meet other state/local goals (e.g., student physical
activity and health goals, reducing stress on transportation systems,
meeting fiscal requirements, efficient use of tax dollars);
-- Analyze and document existing policies and practices and solutions
at the state level or on a state-wide basis in 4-10 selected states.
Results will also include state-specific educational materials for the
selected states.

EPA expects to award $101,000 in the first year with the possibility of
additional funding of up to $400,000 in total over a project period of
up to five years. Future year funding is highly uncertain and
applicants should tailor first year funding in such a manner that
discrete products are produced at the end of year 1 and the project can
either be brought to a logical conclusion at the end of year one or
built upon with subsequent funding.

Proposals are due by 5pm East Coast time July 2, 2007.
