U.S. Environmental Protection Agency

The United States Environmental Protection Agency was born on December 2, 1970.The mission of EPA is to protect human health and the environment. • Develop and enforce regulations: Implement an environmental law by writing regulations passed by congress. Set national standards that states and tribes enforce through their own regulations. • Give grants: Provide grants to state environmental programs, non-profits, educational institutions, and others. • Study environmental issues: At laboratories located throughout the nation, EPA identify and try to solve environmental problems. To learn even more, we share information with other countries, private sector organizations, academic institutions, and other agencies. • Sponsor partnerships: EPA don't protect the environment on its own. It work with businesses, non-profit organizations, and state and local governments through dozens of partnerships. A few examples include conserving water and energy, minimizing greenhouse gases, re-using solid waste, and getting a handle on pesticide risks. In return, we share information and publicly recognize our partners.
