Request for Project Ideas for 2021

The Pesticide Educational Resources Collaborative (PERC) invites your ideas for new educational resources/projects to serve the nation's needs. Your ideas will be considered by the PERC Advisory Board. They may be related to:

  • Pesticide Applicator Certification and Training Regulations, and/or
  • The revised Worker Protection Standard (WPS),
  • Other pesticide-related topics such as pollinator protection, IPM, and protecting air/water resources.

Projects could include brochures, fact sheets, posters, videos, manuals, exams, mobile apps/tools, and/or other items. These materials will educate people, and potentially prevent pesticide exposure incidents that may affect the environment, the public, pesticide applicators and/or their families.

Please send us your project idea(s) using this link to have it considered by the PERC Advisory Board for the 2021 priority list. This is not a solicitation, but a gathering of input on resources that are needed. After a project is approved by the Advisory Board, PERC uses a competitive process to select the development team.

Project idea receipt deadline: Monday, November 2, 2020 (no anticipated extensions)

About PERC: The PERC is funded by a 5-year cooperative agreement (#X8-83616301) between the U.S. EPA and the University of California Davis Extension, in cooperation with Oregon State University. It supports the development of resources and materials on the safe use of pesticides by applicators and handlers in agricultural, commercial, and residential settings. Many are already listed on our website here.
