NATIONAL PRIORITIES: PER- AND POLYFLUOROALKYL SUBSTANCES
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Funding Opportunity EPA-G2018-ORD-A1, 2018

To better understand the impacts of per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) on water quality and availability across the United States, U.S. EPA seeks proposals for obtaining new information on the following topics:
  1. The fate and transport of short (C4 to C7) and long-chain (≥ C8) PFAS in the environment, including per- and poly-fluorinated carboxylic acids, sulfonic acids, and ethers, and associated precursor and transformation products.
  2. Comprehensive human and ecosystem exposure to PFAS.
  3. PFAS toxicity, modes of action, physiologically-based pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics, and other topics related to hazard assessment.
Proposals may address any or all of these topics in support of the development of robust risk assessments for human and ecological exposure to PFASs in water. Estimated total program funding is $3,968,800, and two awards are anticipated. The closing date for applications is June 18, 2018.
