$1,000,000 available for Technical Assistance Grants to Communities for Pipeline Safety

PHMSA has just recently listed $1,000,000 available for Technical Assistance Grants to Communities. This is a new program and these grants are to "allow communities and groups of individuals to obtain funding for technical assistance in the form of engineering or other scientific analysis of pipeline safety issues and help promote public participation in official proceedings. For purposes of grants eligibility, communities are defined as cities, towns, villages, counties, parishes, townships, and similar governmental subdivisions, or consortiums of such subdivisions. A nongovernmental group of individuals is eligible for a grant under the TAG program if its members are affected or potentially affected individuals who are, or are willing to become, incorporated as a non-profit organization in the state where they are located."



The closing date for applications is May 28, 2009, so people interested need to get cracking.
