The Hazardous Waste Management Grant Program For Tribes will support projects designed to develop and implement hazardous waste management programs. These programs must improve the applicant’s ability to properly identify, manage, or dispose of hazardous waste. Each of the following hazardous waste management program activities are considered central to a “cradle to grave” program:
- Hazardous waste identification
- Hazardous waste generator siting, monitoring, and compliance (large quantity, small quantity, and conditionally exempt small quantity generators)
- Hazardous waste minimization and recycling, and 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
To address hazardous waste management issues, EPA is responsible for implementing the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) Subtitle C program.

This solicitation will support all hazardous waste management activities that address the RCRA Subtitle C “cradle to grave” approach are eligible.
