Within EPA, the American Indian Environmental Office (AIEO) coordinates the Agency-wide effort to strengthen public health and environmental protection in Indian country, with a special emphasis on helping tribes administer their own environmental programs. AIEO manages the Indian Environmental General Assistance Program (GAP). The GAP provides grant funding to federally-recognized tribes and intertribal consortia through a negotiated process administered by each EPA Region. The grant funds may be used by tribes to plan and carry out a number of environmental capacity-building activities.
