Region 10 Indian Environmental General Assistance Program


Recent Deadline: 1/29/2021 EPA provides GAP financial and technical assistance to tribal governments and intertribal consortia to assist tribes in planning, developing, and establishing the capacity to implement federal environmental programs administered by the EPA and to assist in implementation of tribal solid and hazardous waste programs in accordance with applicable provisions of law, including the Solid Waste Disposal Act (commonly known as the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, or RCRA). As described in the GAP Guiding Principles, this support promotes tribal government efforts to develop core environmental program capacities (administrative, financial management, information management, environmental baseline needs assessment, public education/communication, legal, and technical/analytical) and baseline capacities for media-specific programs (e.g., ambient air quality, water quality, managing waste, and other EPA-administered statutory programs).

Funding Amount
$75,000 - $125,000 per year. Tribes with large reservations may request a higher level of funding.
Matching Funds
All federally recognized tribes in Region 10 are eligible to receive funds. Intertribal consortia that meet the eligibility requirements described above may also receive funding, if available after tribal governments are funded at their base funding levels.
