EPA Strategic Plan

FY 2018 – FY 2022 EPA Strategic Plan

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s FY 2018 – FY 2022 Strategic Plan emphasizes the Agency’s “Back-to-Basic” agenda. The agenda set out in this plan has three over-arching goals which reflect the Administrator’s core philosophies: (1) refocus the agency back to its core mission; (2) restore power to the states through cooperative federalism; and (3) lead the agency through improved processes and adhere to the rule of law.

Taken together, these goals are designed to transform the way the Agency does business and more efficiently and effectively delivers human health and environmental results. The Agency’s mission of protecting human health and the environment resonates with all Americans and we can all agree that we want our future generations to inherit a cleaner, healthier environment that supports a thriving economy.
