EPA Tools and Best Practices Supporting the Recovery Act
The Recovery Act (ARRA 2009) calls for investment in “environmental protection and other infrastructure that will provide long-term economic benefits.” As such, it provides unparalleled opportunities for the Federal government to demonstrate environmental leadership in energy efficiency, green building, purchasing, and other sustainability strategies.
Tools to Help Federal Agencies Comply with Environmental Requirements
Compliance Assistance - Find assistance tools for specific statutes or regulations and compliance information for specific industry and government sectors
FedCenter.gov – Find federal government resources and information pertaining to multiple program areas such as clean-up, transportation, NEPA, pollution prevention, and energy
While EPA has direct implementation responsibilities for six program areas, other federal agencies and the recipients of Recovery Act funds can also incorporate sustainable practices into their Recovery activities. On this EPA-based ARRA grants page you will find key work that will be done by other agencies and EPA resources that can help support sustainable outcomes.
