Tribal program contacts provide useful, up-to-date information about building waste management capacity, developing tribal infrastructure, realizing economic sustainability for tribal waste programs, and forging partnerships for waste management among tribes, states, local governments, and federal agencies.

Regional Tribal Program Coordinators

EPA has ten regional offices, each of which coordinates tribal programs within their respective regions. The Regional Tribal Program Coordinators are your first point of contact for many services, including support for many solid waste management grants. To find the contact person for your region, click on your location on the map, or find the appropriate listing according to region number, in the table below. Regional contacts are listed for the municipal solid waste (MSW) and the hazardous waste (HW) programs.
