School Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Grants
EPA’s Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention (OCSPP) has launched an initiative to promote expanded use of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) in schools. To provide greater protection for children’s health by employing IPM as a pollution prevention tool, EPA is increasing its commitment to school IPM and redirecting resources to increase the attention and support given to school IPM programs. This effort is intended to accelerate the move from demonstration to the implementation of school IPM to ensure that the millions of children in our nation’s schools will benefit from the protection afforded by quality IPM programs.
