PERC is the Pesticide Educational Resources Collaborative, a 5-year cooperative agreement
between the EPA’s Office of Pesticide Programs and University of California Davis Extension, in
collaboration with Oregon State University.
PERC is currently funded from 2016-2026 to coordinate the development of pesticide-related educational resources (i.e., manuals, videos, guides) that meet national needs. See our list of projects, completed and in-progress.
The PERC Advisory Board meets annually to determine priority needs, and monthly to hear from representatives about emerging needs and to gather feedback about PERC products.
The materials produced by PERC are intended for use by non-profit educators. Anyone may print and distribute PERC materials at minimal or no cost to the end-recipients. Non-profit educators may request original files in order to modify PERC materials. See our policy on Using PERC's Works.
A sister project, PERC-Med, complements the scope of PERC. This project creates pesticide-related outreach and educational materials for health-care providers, promoting the recognition, management, and treatment of pesticide poisoning.
Sign up to be notified about PERC releases and solicitations. When we're building a new project team or Advisory Board, you'll be the first to know!
