Sponsored by the Administration for Native Americans (ANA) office under DHHS, the Environmental Regulatory Enhancement grant program emphasizes community-based, locally-designed projects that strengthen tribal governments’ and organizations’ ability to identify, plan, develop, and implement environmental regulatory programs in a manner consistent with the goals and priorities of native communities. The ANA recognizes that sustainable change beneficial to environmentally healthy Native American communities must originate within the community. Funding interests include establishing baseline conditions for regulatory purposes and developing regulations, ordinances, and laws to protect the environment. In addition, the Program seeks to build technical and program capability of the Tribe or organization to perform essential environmental program functions and to monitor compliance and enforcement of tribal and Federal environmental regulations, ordinances, and laws. Funding can also be utilized to inform the community about regulations and environmental stewardship as well as developing demonstration projects to exhibit technologies, which can lead to compliance with environmental regulations. Eligible applicants include federally recognized Indian Tribes; incorporated non-Federally and state recognized Indian Tribes; Alaska Native villages; nonprofit Alaska Native Regional Corporations/Associations in Alaska with village-specific projects; other Tribal or village organizations or consortia of Indian Tribes; and Tribal governing bodies as recognized by the Bureau of Indian Affairs.
