Funding Requests

The Greenville County LEPC receives funding through County Ordinance #4295, which enacts a hazardous substance user fee on facilities that house hazardous substances above the threshold planning quantity established by the EPA.

Purpose

The ordinance states that all funds collected are to be used exclusively for hazardous substance safety purposes, including training, equipment, and public awareness materials/education.

How to Apply

Each funding request should be submitted separately using the application below. Email any supporting documentation (quotes, letters, etc.) to the LEPC.

Review Process

Funding is limited and cannot be guaranteed. All applications will be scored based on:

●       Objective (Does it address hazmat safety?)

●       Impact (How many departments/communities will benefit?)

●       Need (Are other resources available?)

●       Value (What is the cost/benefit ratio?)

If scores are similar, priority will be given to those who have never received LEPC funding and to applications that were received first.

Applications can be submitted at any time, but are reviewed twice a year: April and October.

The next deadline for submission is October 11, 2017.
