Region 10 Tribal Operations Committee
Mission: To protect and improve Tribal health and environmental conditions affecting Federally Recognized Tribes consistent with the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Indian Lands Policy, EPA’s trust responsibility, environmental laws, policies and guidance.
The primary function of the Regional Tribal Operations Committee (RTOC) is a partnership with the United States Environmental Protection Agency to further Tribal environmental objectives at the regional level, to serve as a liaison between the EPA and Tribes regarding information exchange, and to provide assistance to the National Tribal Operations Committee (NTOC).
The Regional Tribal Operations Committee (RTOC) is a partnership between the United States Environmental Protection Agency Region 10 (EPA) and elected Tribal representatives. Funding for the Region 10 Tribal Operations Committee is provided under a grant/cooperative agreement from EPA Region 10. Currently, this grant is administered by Curyung Tribal Council in Alaska.
The relationship between the RTOC and the EPA will not substitute for government-to-government consultation between EPA and individual tribal governments.
