State Environmental Enforcement Training (SEET) Grant

What is the SEET Grant?

A State Environmental Enforcement Training (SEET) Grant provides non-competitive grant funds for states to build and expand their training on environmental compliance and enforcement.  States play a vital role in the implementation of the nation’s environmental Laws & Regulations. 

Training is to be provided in traditional classroom and distance learning training such as webinars, virtual classrooms, and web-based courses using computer-based technologies.

Grant Funding

  • $300,000 for the first year
  • $300,000 may be available for each of the two subsequent years

Eligibility to apply:

Eligible entities are state governments, state consortiums, Federally recognized Indian Tribes and Intertribal Consortia, non-profit training organizations, institutions of higher education, and quasi-governmental entities. 

These grants are managed by the National Enforcement Training Institute (NETI). Since the late 1980’s the four Regional Environmental Enforcement  AssociationsExit EPA Disclaimer have received these grants.
