An official website of the United States government.

Due to a lapse in appropriations, EPA websites will not be regularly updated. In the event of an environmental emergency imminently threatening the safety of human life or where necessary to protect certain property, the EPA website will be updated with appropriate information. Please note that all information on the EPA website may not be up to date, and transactions and inquiries submitted to the EPA website may not be processed or responded to until appropriations are enacted.

We've made some changes to EPA.gov. If the information you are looking for is not here, you may be able to find it on the EPA Web Archive or the January 19, 2017 Web Snapshot.

All Environmental Programs in Indian Country

EPA works to protect human health and the environment of federally recognized tribes by supporting implementation of federal environmental laws, with a special emphasis on helping tribes administer their own environmental programs. These efforts are consistent with the federal trust responsibility, the government-to-government relationship, and EPA's 1984 Indian Policy.
