EPA opens wallet to get more states on data exchange

The Environmental Protection Agency is offering between $75,000 and $300,000 for state and tribal governments to join the Central Data Exchange.

EPA announced the grant opportunity in the Oct. 21 Federal Register.

The Central Data Exchange is a nationwide network that facilitates electronic reporting and exchange of environmental information among EPA and state and tribal partners.

State and tribal governments can apply for funding in one of three areas:

  • Readiness—to support the development of information management and technology capabilities to participate in the exchange network

  • Implementation—to support the development of the exchange network flows, data standards, Extensible Markup Language schema and Web services

  • Challenge—to support the planning and development of projects.


Grant applications are due Jan. 15. For a copy of the grant solicitation, go to www.epa.gov/Networkg.
