Recommendations to Incorporate Green Practices into Federally Funded Construction Projects

Tools to Help Federal Agencies Comply with Environmental Requirements

Compliance Assistance - Find assistance tools for specific statutes or regulations and compliance information for specific industry and government sectors

FedCenter.gov – Find federal government resources and information pertaining to multiple program areas such as clean-up, transportation, NEPA, pollution prevention, and energy

The Recovery Act presents numerous opportunities to help build a healthier, more prosperous, and sustainable future. EPA offers the following recommendations to assist funding recipients with achieving environmental, as well as economic and social justice goals. 

These actions can be incorporated into projects without slowing project funding or implementation. They can also support development of a “green” workforce and may reduce future operation and maintenance costs. Although EPA does not require that recipients adopt these practices, the Agency encourages recipients to consider using them when designing and implementing Recovery Act-funded construction projects.
