Grants & Funding

Quick Links

AIEO manages the Indian Environmental General Assistance Program (GAP). The GAP provides grant funding to federally-recognized tribes and intertribal consortia through a negotiated process administered by each EPA Region. The grant funds may be used by tribes to plan and carry out a number of environmental capacity-building activities.

AIEO also promotes the use of Direct Implementation Tribal Cooperative Agreements (DITCAs). DITCAs is a funding authority enabling EPA to award funds to federally-recognized tribe and qualified intertribal consortia to carry out agreed upon activities to assist EPA with the implementation of federal environmental programs. Further information is found below.
