Tribal Waste and Response Assistance Program

Tribal Waste and Response Assistance Program

In late 2008 ITEP was awarded funding from the US Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response (OSWER), which has allowed ITEP to expand assistance activities for tribal nations and communities including:

  • The development of a national steering committee of tribal professionals working in solid waste, hazardous waste, brownfields, emergency response, and related fields;
  • The creation of an annual tribal conference focused on solid waste, hazardous waste, brownfields, emergency response, and related fields;
  • The design and delivery of four specialized training courses – two in the Lower 48 States and two in Alaska – focused on solid waste, hazardous waste, brownfields, emergency response, and related fields;
  • Working with faculty and researchers at Northern Arizona University, in conjunction with tribal and federal partners, three specialized research projects focused on solid waste, hazardous waste, brownfields, emergency response, and related fields will be completed.
