Criteria for selecting proposals...

EPA will review all proposals. Applicants who submit proposals for both blood-lead screening and lead awareness must submit two separate proposal packages, since screening and outreach submissions will be evaluated separately. Proposals will be reviewed for quality, strength, and completeness against the following criteria. The maximum rating score of a proposal is 100 points (plus 5 bonus points in the budget section). A. Blood-Lead Screening Proposal. 1. General (20 points). The applicant's proposal must include reasonable and attainable goals and an approach that is clearly detailed. The applicant must describe how the effectiveness of the project will be determined. 2. Blood-lead collection activity (50 points). The applicant's description of plans to develop a blood-lead screening program for tribal children will be evaluated. 3. Project management (20 points). The applicant should describe positions of staff, roles and responsibilities, and their qualifications. 4. Budget and schedule (10 points). The evaluation will be based on the extent to which the budget and schedule is reasonable, clear, and consistent with the intended use of the funds. Although matching funds are not required, up to five bonus points will be given to proposals indicating financial contributions and/or in-kind services provided to the project. B.
