Ambient Air Quality/EPA/NTAA/Tribes

NEW! Today, April 12, 2023, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Michael Regan announced new, more ambitious proposed standards to further reduce harmful air pollutant emissions from light-duty, medium-duty, and heavy-duty vehicles starting with model year 2027 in two separate regulatory actions:

Given the potential interest by Tribal governments, the Office of Transportation and Air Quality (OTAQ) we will be offering virtual information sessions on the proposed rule through upcoming regularly scheduled calls hosted by the National Tribal Air Association. If your Tribe has questions about the proposed rule or would like to engage in individualized government-to-government consultation with EPA, please contact Jessie Mroz at (202)-564-1094 or email at Mroz.Jessica@epa.gov.

NEW! EPA’s Climate Pollution Reduction Grant Program (CPRG) will be hosting four public listening sessions on April 14, April 17, and April 18, and April 20.

At each listening session, EPA will pose questions for feedback. These sessions follow on from the 2022 listening sessions and Request For Information (RFI) and are meant to provide an additional opportunity for input on the CPRG implementation phase after stakeholders have had time to review the CPRG planning grant guidance that was released in March. Note, no new information will be presented by EPA during these sessions. Rather than discussed during these sessions, questions for EPA about the planning phase of the program should be directed to CPRG@epa.gov.


Registration is required and we will post the slides and a recording on this website after the listening sessions are complete. Spanish translation services will be offered.

REMINDER! On March 17, 2023, EPA issued draft guidance to address the Clean Air Act’s contingency measure (CM) requirement for nonattainment areas for the ozone and particulate matter National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS).

This draft guidance clarifies and explains approaches available to air agencies to meet the CM requirement, while still complying with the Clean Air Act as interpreted by the courts.

Under the draft guidance, EPA would allow more measures to be considered as possible CMs and would also change the way the recommended amount of CM reductions is calculated to account for the nonattainment area’s projected decline in emissions needed to attain the NAAQS. EPA is also clarifying that it could accept less than the recommended amount of CM reductions if an air agency sufficiently demonstrates that its nonattainment plan includes all feasible measures and there are not additional feasible measures in the area that could be held in reserve as CMs.

Once the notice is published in the Federal Register, there will be an opportunity for public comment for 30 days. Submit your comments, identified by Docket ID No. EPA-HQ-OAR-2023- 0063, at http://www.regulations.gov.

REMINDER! The White House: FACT SHEET: How the Inflation Reduction Act Helps Tribal Communities

By signing the Inflation Reduction Act, President Biden is delivering on his promise to meet the climate crisis and build an economy that works for working families, including Tribal nations and American Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian families. The Inflation Reduction Act lowers prescription drug costs, health care costs, and energy costs. It’s the most aggressive action we have taken to confront the climate crisis. It’ll lower the deficit and ask the super wealthy and corporations to pay their fair share. And no one making under $400,000 per year will pay a penny more in taxes. Click Here for FACT SHEET.
