This Website provides information about environmental projects administered by EPA in the four Region 7 states (Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, and Nebraska) under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 ("ARRA").

ARRA provides funding for significant projects that will help clean Region 7's environment, and provide better environmental and public health protection to Region 7's citizens. EPA's portion of the plan will create green jobs that will also help clean contaminated land, produce cleaner drinking water and air quality, spur environmentally-conscious urban and rural redevelopment, and reduce greenhouse gases.

Reporting Requirements

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) issued guidance in June for federal agencies and recipients of Recovery Act funding on reporting requirements. To ensure the public and recipients receive as much information as possible on the reporting aspects of the Act, OMB held a series of webinars in late July.

Funding from ARRA includes projects to clean Brownfields, speed cleanup work at Superfund sites, support the implementation of diesel emission reduction technologies, assess and clean up underground storage tank leaks, and improve water quality infrastructure.
