EPA awards grants to Oklahoma, New Mexico tribes

Oklahoma City (AP) October 2010

The Environmental Protection Agency has awarded $470,000 to Native American tribes in Oklahoma and New Mexico for a project aimed at developing and managing environmental programs in tribes’ regions.

Officials say in Oklahoma, the Otoe-Missouria tribe received $120,000 and $110,000 was given to the Apache tribe. The Pueblo of Picuris and Nambe tribes of New Mexico were awarded $120,000.

The projects also will include grant writing, quality assurance documentation, environmental training and community outreach and cleanups.

The agency says it works with tribal governments to strengthen public health and environmental protection in Indian country, with an emphasis on helping tribes administer their own environmental programs.
