The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is announcing the availability of $335,000 in technical assistance for communities seeking technical support to develop and implement an integrated planning approach to meeting Clean Water Act (CWA) requirements for municipal wastewater and stormwater management.

The primary purpose of the technical assistance is to help EPA develop practical examples of how to implement the different steps in developing an integrated plan in order to provide useful information to communities across the nation who are interested in integrated planning.

Interested communities are encouraged to respond to the Request for Letters of Interest. The request for letters of interest is also available at http://cfpub.epa.gov/npdes/integratedplans.cfm.

Applicants must submit their letters of interest via email to IP_Tech_Assistance@epa.gov to the attention of Kevin Weiss. Letters of interest must be received by June 27, 2014, 5:00 p.m. EST. 

EPA anticipates providing assistance to 5 communities. If additional funding becomes available, EPA may return to the applicant pool identified through this Request to select additional recipient communities. If you have any questions, contact Kevin Weiss, Chemical Engineer, EPA Water Permits Division at Weiss.kevin@epa.gov or 202-564-0742.
