Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act State and Tribal Assistance Grant Program

The Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) State and Tribal Assistance Grant (STAG) Program seeks to assist states, territories, the District of Columbia and Indian tribes:

  • in developing and maintaining comprehensive pesticide programs that address all aspects of pesticide enforcement and special pesticide initiatives
  • in sponsoring cooperative surveillance, monitoring and analytical procedures
  • in encouraging regulatory activities within the states and tribes

The statutory authority for this grant program can be found at Section 23(a) of FIFRA (7 USC sec. 136u).

The FIFRA STAG compliance monitoring program awards approximately 24 million dollars annually through negotiated cooperative agreements between EPA and state and tribes.  The agreements establish and operate compliance monitoring programs in 49 authorized states, 6 territories and 23 tribes under FIFRA to conduct pesticide compliance and enforcement programs.
