The mission of EPA is to protect human health and to safeguard the natural environment -- air, water and land -- upon which life depends.To accomplish this mission:
We Develop and Enforce Regulations When Congress writes an environmental law, we implement it by writing regulations
Give Grants Nearly half of our budget goes into grants to state environmental programs, non-profits, educational institutions, and others.
Study Environmental Issues At laboratories located throughout the nation, we 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 We don't protect the environment on our own, we work with businesses, non-profit organizations, and state and local governments through dozens of partnerships.
