Administrator Lisa Jackson talks about EPA's progress under the Recovery Act

Lisa Jackson, EPA Administrator

The Recovery Act provides funding for significant projects that will help clean our environment, and provide better environmental and public health protection to citizens in the Pacific Northwest and Alaska. 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.

Funding includes projects to clean Brownfields, speed clean up work at Superfund sites, support the implementation of diesel emission reduction technologies, assess and clean up underground storage tanks, and improve the nation's water quality infrastructure.

Reporting Requirements

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

Listen to audio files and view PDF presentation materials for these informative webinars.

Brownfields: Additional grant funding will help community groups evaluate and clean up former industrial and commercial sites.

Clean Diesel Projects: Additional grant funding will help state and local governments, and non-profit organizations with projects that reduce diesel emissions in Region 10 communities.

A portion of the funding will be targeted toward green infrastructure, water and energy efficiency, and environmentally innovative projects.
