INDIAN GENERAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAM (IGAP)

Indian General Assistance Program

In 1992, Congress passed the Indian Environmental General Assistance Program Act. This act authorized EPA to provide General Assistance Program (GAP) grants to federally recognized tribes and tribal consortia for planning, developing and establishing environmental protection programs in Indian country, and for developing and implementing solid and hazardous waste programs on tribal lands.

The goal of GAP (CFDA 66.926) is to assist tribes and inter tribal consortia in developing the capacity to manage their own environmental protection programs, and to develop and implement solid and hazardous waste programs in accordance with individual tribal needs and applicable federal laws and regulations.

The U.S. EPA has funded an Environmental Program through Indian General Assistance Program (IGAP) dollars at the DIA since 1997, and the Tribe has been investigating and addressing environmental impacts to our membership since that time.
