This program provides grants to federally-recognized tribes and intertribal consortia for the development and implementation of hazardous waste programs and for building capacity to address hazardous waste management on tribal lands.

Projects must address "cradle to grave" waste management from the moment it is generated; while it is transported, treated, or stored; until it is finally re-used or disposed of in a safe manner. This includes:

  • Hazardous waste identification
  • Hazardous waste generator siting, monitoring, and compliance
  • Hazardous waste minimization and recycling, as well as the management of used oil and universal wastes
  • Hazardous waste transportation
  • Treatment, storage, and disposal facility siting, permitting, monitoring, corrective action, and enforcement
  • Land disposal restrictions
  • Combustion

Specific examples of program activities are listed in the application instructions.


Eligible applicants are federally-recognized tribal governments and intertribal consortia.
