The United States  Environmental Protection Agency   Announces the
Availability of  1995 Grants  for Research on Reducing Uncertainty in Risk
Assessment and  Improving Risk Reduction Approaches

APPLICATION SUBMISSION CLOSING DATE:  APRIL 17, 1995

 Introduction

 The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)  invites research grant
applications in four areas of  special interest to its mission:

€Human health risk assessment
€Indoor air quality in large office buildings
€Air pollutants (particulate matter, tropospheric
   ozone, and toxics)
€Regional hydrologic vulnerability to global
   climate change

 This invitation provides relevant background  information, summarizes EPA
interests in the four  topic areas, and describes the application and 
review process.

 Background

 EPA has increased funding for its investigator-  initiated research
grants in fiscal year 1995.  EPA  therefore is issuing two additional
Requests for  Applications (RFAs), of which this is one.  The  other is a
joint solicitation with the National  Science Foundation (NSF) that
identifies three  areas of interest to both agencies -- water and 
watersheds; valuation and environmental policy;  and technology for a
sustainable environment  (pollution prevention).

 Information on the NSF/EPA solicitation can  be  obtained by contacting:
 
Dr. Penny Firth at NSF, (703) 306-1480, pfirth at nsf.gov 

or 

 Dr. Melinda McClanahan at EPA, (202) 260-7474, hawthorne.karen at epamail.epa.gov

Application forms and instructions are available in  the EPA Research
Grants Application Kit.  Interested investigators should review the 
materials in this kit before preparing an  application for assistance. 
The kits as well as  additional general information on the grants  program
may be obtained by contacting:

   U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
   Office of Research and Development
   Office of Exploratory Research (8703)
   401 M Street, SW
