Examples of funded projects...
State agencies participating in the Federal/State cooperative agreement program receive funds to support and strengthen their pesticide compliance programs, including pesticide compliance monitoring, inspection and enforcement activities as well as special pesticide initiatives activities. Typical program activities, which are generally common to all cooperative agreements, include inspections and observations at pesticide application sites to ensure user compliance with label directions and acceptable use practices, inspections of pesticide products at producing facilities and in the retail marketplace to ensure industry compliance with registration, classification, and labeling requirements, and initiation of appropriate enforcement action when violations are detected including civil and criminal prosecution, stop sale orders, seizures, recalls and notices. The special pesticide initiatives are new projects, which include the development of State management plans for the protection of groundwater and endangered species from pesticides and development of worker protection programs.
