The Indian Environmental General Assistance Program Act of 1992 provides programmatic authorization for the General Assistance Program (GAP), which was previously implemented as the Multi-Media Assistance Program. The GAP provides an opportunity for tribes to build capacity and management capability to develop environmental programs and is administered by the EPA. Under the Program, tribes can tailor capacity-building to address their environmental priorities. GAP provides the opportunity for a tribe to plan, develop, and establish an integrated environmental management program including the capability to manage specific regulatory programs. The GAP is one part of the continuing effort of the Agency to facilitate tribal establishment of environmental programs. GAP has become both a core tribal environmental program and a core EPA program, representing the largest single source of funding for Tribal environmental programs awarded by EPA. GAP has increased from an original $8.4 million in 1994 to $57 million for the year 2007. GAP provides financial resources in the form of direct funding to federally recognized tribes and intertribal consortia.
