Cooperative Agreement on Pesticide Safety Education

EPA is awarding the eXtension Foundation with a cooperative agreement to establish a system to distribute EPA funds to Pesticide Safety Education Programs (PSEPs) in State Cooperative Extension Services at Land Grant Universities.

PSEPs will use the funds to provide pesticide applicator training on the safe use of restricted use pesticides by applicators in agricultural, commercial and residential settings.

The cooperative agreement is funded at $1,500,000 for the first year, with up to $1,000,000 for each of the four remaining years.  We expect to award up to $5,500,000 over the five years.  EPA solicited proposals from eligible applicants and applications were due last December.
