State and Tribal Assistance Grant Programs

Forging strong partnerships is an important aspect of EPA's enforcement and compliance assurance program. States and tribes play a crucial role in the implementation of our nation's environmental Laws & Regulations. Strengthening these relationships through improved coordination, joint work planning and specialized assistance will promote greater compliance. One key partnership with states involves work planning and support through cooperative agreements, referred to as State and Tribal Assistance Grants (STAG).

The enforcement and compliance assurance program manages several grant programs that directly aid and assist states and tribes in implementing their compliance and enforcement programs.

Other State Grant Programs

The State Environmental Enforcement Training Program grants are managed by the National Enforcement Training Institute (NETI) and are intended to build state capacity for monitoring compliance with and enforcing violations of environmental Laws & Regulations.  The program provides training opportunities throughout the 50 United States and reaches a variety of professional disciplines, covering multiple statutes/media/programs. The selected recipient for the FY2009 grant competition was the Southern Environmental Enforcement Network, in collaboration with the Regional Environmental Enforcement Associations.Exit EPA Disclaimer
