Consultation and Coordination with Tribes in Region 10
EPA's policy is to consult on a government-to-government basis with federally recognized tribal governments when EPA actions and decisions may affect tribal interests.
To view current EPA consultation opportunities, visit the Tribal Consultation Opportunities Tracking System (TCOTS).
The EPA Policy on Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribes (May 4, 2011) establishes national guidelines and institutional controls for consultation across EPA.
The EPA Region 10 Tribal Consultation and Coordination Procedures (PDF)(24 pp, 505 K, About PDF) are consistent with the agency-wide consultation policy, but include more specific guidelines for the consultation process to meet the needs and practices of tribes in EPA Region 10.
