The EPA Region 4 Tribal Program works with the six federally recognized tribes in the southeast to protect the human health and environment in Indian country. We work government-to-government with Region 4 tribes to develop, implement and support tribal environmental programs consistent with EPA’s authorities, the federal trust responsibility and EPA’s 1984 Indian Policy.

GAP is guided by the Guidance on the Award and Management of General Assistance Agreements for Tribes and Intertribal Consortia. See the regional GAP information below for further details on the administration of GAP in Region 4.
