What is a TAG?

Recognizing the importance of community involvement and the need for citizens living near NPL sites to be well informed, Congress included provisions in the Superfund Reauthorization Act of 1986 to establish the TAG program, intended to promote involvement in decisions on site-specific cleanup strategies under Superfund.

A Technical Assistance Grant (TAG) provides money for activities that help your community participate in decision making at eligible Superfund sites. An initial grant up to $50,000 is available for any Superfund site that is on the EPA's National Priorities List (NPL), proposed for listing on the NPL and a response action has begun. EPA's NPL is a list of the most hazardous waste sites nationwide.
