(Dallas, Texas – October 8, 2009) The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has awarded $1,100,000 to the Border Environment Cooperation Commission (BECC).

BECC will coordinate with EPA on the development of a process for the solicitation of project proposals, selection of eligible projects, and implementation of selected projects for EPA Region 6. BECC will also coordinate with EPA on the implementation of requests for proposals (RFPs) and the selection of eligible and ranked projects. Projects will then be implemented in accordance with a strategy developed by the BECC.
