FY 2018-2019 NPM Guidances Early Engagement Summaries

As part of developing the FY 2018-2019 NPM Guidances, NPMs reached out to states and tribes from July 19 through December 1, 2016, to solicit input on priorities to consider in developing their FY 2018-2019 NPM Guidances. Below are the NPMs’ summaries of these engagement efforts.


Final FY 2017 Addendums to the FY 2016-2017 NPM Guidances

EPA developed FY 2017 Exceptions-Based Addendums to update the two-year FY 2016-2017 National Program Manager (NPM) Guidances, issued in April 2015.* The FY 2017 Addendums address and incorporate significant changes identified after the release of the FY 2016-2017 NPM Guidances that are important for EPA, states, and tribes. The Overview provides additional context and summarizes the major updates captured in the FY 2017 Exceptions-Based Addendums.

The FY 2017 Exceptions-Based Addendums were available for comment from February 19 to March 25, 2016. OECA, OCSPP, OLEM, and OEI received no comments during the public comment period.

* OCIR/NEPPS and OITA did not develop Addendums for FY 2017: there were no significant changes to the OCIR/NEPPS and OITA FY 2016-2017 National Program Manager (NPM) Guidances.
**In 2015, the Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response (OSWER) was reorganized and renamed the Office of Land and Emergency Management (OLEM).
