EPA IGAP

Indian Environmental General Assistance Program (IGAP)

IGAP is a federal Act authorizing the Environmental Protection Agency (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, as well as for developing and implementing solid and hazardous waste programs on Tribal lands. The goal of this program is to assist Tribes 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 Craig Tribal Association is in its 13th year of funding through the IGAP program. We have established a recycling program, as well as committed to providing educational outreach and materials to our community. We have completed projects in the areas of indoor air quality, outdoor air quality, traditional and customary resource protection, and traditional and customary knowledge protection, to name a few. We host the Annual Deer Celebration, as well as co-host events such as Earth Day and The Energy Cents Energy Fair.

RECYCLING PROGRAM:

In conjunction with Klawock Cooperative Association, Hydaburg Cooperative Association, and Organized Village of Kasaan, CTA is working with the City of Thorne Bay to facilitate the continuation of the recycling program on the island. 

WATER QUALITY PROGRAM:

The Environmental Department has implemented a water quality monitoring program on traditional and customary streams. Currently, we are monitoring two streams in the traditional territory obtaining baseline data that can later be used for enhancement or mitigation projects.

If you have any comments, questions, or concerns in regards to current or future projects, or project ideas, please feel free to come into the office and talk with us, or contact staff @ 826-5125
