School District Participants Sought for EPA-Funded Study on the Economics of School IPM

Health Resources in Action (HRiA) is seeking applications from school districts across the country to participate in an economic assessment of the implementation of integrated pest management programs in schools. The project, Keeping the Pests Out: The Economics of IPM in Schools, is funded by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention, and will inform school pest management policies nationwide. HRiA will select three school districts that are diverse in terms of size, setting and location; the plan is to include one rural, suburban and urban district. The economic assessment is provided free to the selected school districts, and each of the selected three school districts will be compensated $6,000 for their participation over the project period. Request for Qualifications (RFQ) need to be submitted online by May 6th. More.
