Enhancing State and Tribal Programs (ESTP)
Enhancing State and Tribal Programs (ESTP) is EPA's initiative to enhance the Agency's delivery of technical and financial support for state and tribal wetlands programs, with the overall objective of accelerating program development on a national scale.
The ESTP Initiative: ESTP is built upon a framework of Four Core Elements, basic program functions that form the foundation of wetlands management and protection in a state or tribe.
- ESTP Core Elements of an Effective State and Tribal Wetlands Program Framework: The ESTP and Core Elements Framework were designed for states and tribes to develop Wetland Program Plans (WPP). WPPs are voluntary plans developed and implemented by state agencies and tribes which articulate what these entities want to accomplish with their wetland programs over time. WPPs describe overall program goals, along with broad-based actions and more specific activities to help achieve those goals.
