This document reviewed the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) management of American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) funding for the Leaking Underground Storage Tank (LUST) program. We sought to determine whether this oversight ensures that ARRA-funded LUST cooperative agreements comply with applicable laws, regulations, and guidance. EPA allocated $190.7 million of ARRA funds to support state and territorial LUST cleanup programs. The overall purposes of LUST Recovery Act money are to clean up contaminated LUST sites effectively while maximizing job creation and retention, and providing economic and environmental benefits to citizens of the United States.
