Grants for Tribes

EPA provides many avenues of financial assistance to tribes. The Indian General Assistance Program, or GAP, helps tribes build the capacity to manage their own environmental protection programs. Tribal ecoAmbassadors partners EPA scientists with professors at Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCU) to address environmental problems, and gives TCU students the opportunity to work directly with their professors and EPA scientists. Other grants are available for a variety of environmental programs.
