What we do

EPA Region 7 protects human health and the environment in our nation’s Heartland. Our ecosystems are numerous and the range is broad, encompassing the Sandhills of Nebraska, Flint Hills of Kansas, winding Missouri and Mississippi rivers, prairies and plains of Iowa, and forests and delta of Missouri, not to mention all of the rich agricultural lands throughout our region.

Region 7’s three priority areas:

  • Focus on families first
  • Strengthen communities’ resiliency and prosperity
  • Engage the agriculture community

EPA's Region 7 office includes:

Key regional programs and projects

Regional focus areas

  • Air - Improve the air quality in the region. Look for ways to support clean air efforts.
  • Land - Put our time and energy into sites where we can make great strides and create a significant difference. Be a stimulus to help communities connect the green infrastructure tools available to them.
  • Chemical Safety - Ensure the safe use and proper storage of chemicals to protect the citizens of our region.
  • Water - Address challenges across the Heartland related to improving water quality. Work with stakeholders to do our part to mitigate effects downstream.
  • Environmental Justice - Bring focused support to the environmentally overburdened, underserved, and economically distressed.
