Information Collection Request on Grant Reporting Requirements

The EPA is requesting comment on its proposed renewal of the reporting requirements for the BEACH Act Grants Information Collection Request (ICR). As a grant condition, grant recipients are required to collect and submit beach monitoring and notification information to the EPA. Collection of this information allows the EPA to evaluate the extent to which grant recipients fulfill the requirements of the BEACH Act.

Grant Allocation Formula

In 2010, EPA put into place changes to the grant allocation formula it uses to award implementation grants under the Beach Act.  EPA first announced those changes in 2008.
