WHAT'S NEW! - PILOT PROJECT - "EPA TRIBAL NEWS" Sponsored by the OPPTS TRIBAL NEWS is now available online

EPA's Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics (OPPT) has established a Tribal program to better communicate our programs and activities with Native American Indian tribes, and to build more effective partnerships with Native American tribes in protecting and safeguarding the environment.

OPPT's Tribal program was developed in 1997 with the assistance from other EPA offices, the National Indian Workgroup, the EPA’s Tribal Operations Committee, the Forum on State and Tribal Toxics Action (FOSTTA), and members of Native American tribes. Some major activities of the tribal program include grants funding, internal training on tribal issues, follow-up activities from EPA Tribal Operations Committee meetings, interagency coordination efforts, and stakeholder outreach.

OPPT is committed to working in partnership with tribal governments to safeguard and protect the environment from toxic hazards and to promote pollution prevention in Indian country. OPPT has taken steps to foster better communication links through its newly established tribal program. The first priority of this program is improving communication so that we can better exchange information regarding environmental concerns and issues facing Indian country today.
