Subject: Fw: LEAD GRANT OPPORTUNITY deadline April 2, 2007

Attached is a copy of a Request for Proposal (RFP) entitled, "National
Community-Based Lead Outreach and Training Grant Program." This is a new
grant program designed to focus on the approximately 310,000 children
who remain at risk for adverse health effects of elevated blood-lead
levels. Potential activities include outreach, training, ordinance
development, and other activities that will result in reduction of
childhood lead poisoning.

      This grant will support the partnership of national organizations
with community-based organizations and local governments to improve the
environmental health of a community regarding lead poisoning prevention.
EPA is awarding grants that will provide approximately $1.5 million to
interested entities.  Approximately 6-8 awards will be made.

      The application period will extend for 60 days, ending on April 2,
2007.  Additional copies of the RFP are available by visiting the EPA
Lead website at http://www.epa.gov/lead/new.htm . I am expecting it to
be posted on the Federal Grants website at http://www.grants.gov today.
Proposals may be submitted either by mail (or electronically thru
www.grants.gov after posting).  Submittal instructions are provided in
the RFP.

      I plan to send copies of the RFP to your contacts if you provided
me with the information.  Please forward this RFP to appropriate
entities for proposal submission consideration.
