Tribal Air Grants Framework - Menu of Options

EPA is committed to working with tribes to develop and to implement Clean Air Act (CAA) programs in Indian country. One of EPA’s primary tools in this effort is to award CAA grants in order to help build tribal knowledge and increase tribe’s capacity to manage air quality issues. CAA §103 and §105 allow EPA to provide grant support to tribes for this purpose. To assist tribes in writing effective grant applications and work plans, we have developed this “Tribal Air Grants Framework: A Menu of Options.” EPA revised and updated the Framework for the fourth time in 2015.
