EPA Funding in the Pacific Southwest
EPA Funding for FY2012 for the Pacific Southwest Region
About 85% of the $631 million operating budget appropriated by Congress for EPA's Pacific Southwest Region flows to state and tribal agencies, local governments, nonprofit organizations and private-sector companies in the form of grants and contracts.
This funding pays for drinking water and wastewater infrastructure, clean air programs, Superfund site cleanups, rehabilitation of contaminated lands, and many other activities supporting communities and public health.
Regional Funding by Strategic Goal
All told, 62% of regional funding is applied toward the goal of Protecting America's Waters, with nearly $350 million in grants going to the State Revolving Fund, which supports drinking water and wastewater infrastructure as well as nonpoint source pollution and estuary protection programs.
Distribution of Grant Funding
The majority of EPA's grant funding goes to state and tribal agencies for environmental work. (In the Pacific islands, all of EPA's financial support goes to government agencies.) The charts show who receives funding in each of four major geographic areas.
