Programs & Funding

The Exchange Network Grant Program provides funding to states, territoriesand federally recognized Indian tribes to support the development of the Environmental Information Exchange Network (EIEN).The primary outcome expected from Exchange Network assistance agreements is improved access to, and exchange of, high-quality environmental data from public and private sector sources. Applications should demonstrate support for and results towardEIENprogram priorities.

Since FY2002, EPA has awarded approximately $200million in assistance agreements to build the Environmental Information Exchange Network. All 50 states, five territoriesand 87 federally recognized tribes have received grants to facilitate the development and implementation of the EIEN.

Each fiscal year, EPA expects to awardabout $10 millionto approximately40 to 50EIENprojects; awards for each projectcan beup to $500,000.The exact number of awarded grants will depend on:

  • the final amount of EPA's appropriation for the grant program,
  • the number of applications submitted to EPA by the application deadline,
  • the amounts of proposed budgets,and
  • the outcome of application reviews.
