EPA Research to Support States

ORD Meetings with States and Regions

EPA's Office of Research and Development (ORD) periodically hosts meetings with EPA regions and states at ORD labs. These meetings provide an opportunity to discuss topics of interest with states, provide EPA resources available to support states and regions, and explore potential collaborations.

In addition to hosting states at our labs, ORD visits state environmental labs to understand state lab resources and find opportunities to partner with them.

If your state environmental or health agency is interested in coordinating a meeting with ORD, please fill out our contact form.
