CPSC is pleased to announce the Pool Safely Grant Program (PSGP), listed under Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) CPSC-16-001. Successful applicants will be awarded 1-year grants to implement both enforcement and education programs to prevent the drowning and drain entrapment of children in pools and spas, as authorized under Section 1405 of the Virginia Graeme Baker Pool and Spa Safety Act.
This opportunity is open to state and local governments that can demonstrate that they have enacted or amended a state or local law that meets the requirements specified in Section 1406 of the VGB Act (15 U.S.C. § 8005) and that the applicant provides for enforcement of the law. Applicants will have 90 days to apply for the PSGP (May 21, 2015 to August 19, 2015). Applicants may request grants of up to $250,000 each. Once grant applications have been reviewed and scored, CPSC anticipates awarding a total of $1 million in awards.
CPSC will host a Technical Assistance Webinar on Wednesday, June 17, 2015 from 2:00 to 3:30 PM EDT.
