NTAA: Policy Response Kits

Policy Response Kits:


FY 18 Proposed Federal Budget Cuts to Tribal Air Programs:

NTAA has prepared a Policy Response Kit for your Tribe to use in commenting to the U.S. EPA on the FY18 proposed budget put forth by President Trump that would severely cut the State and Tribal Assistance Grants (STAG) appropriation and other federal grants for Tribes needed to build and sustain their air programs. As put forth in the President’s, “AMERICA FIRST: A BUDGET BLUEPRINT TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN,” the 2018 Budget requests $5.7 billion for the Environmental Protection Agency, a reduction of $2.6 billion, or 31%, from the 2017 annualized CR level. There is no public comment period but NTAA urges all Tribes to send a clear message to the U.S. EPA about how these proposed budget cuts would impact Tribal air quality work.
