Welcome to the National Tribal Toxics Council (NTTC) website!

The NTTC is a USEPA Tribal Partnership Group that is focused on providing Tribes with an opportunity for greater input on issues related to toxic chemicals and pollution prevention.

The NTTC will give tribes a forum for providing advice on the development of EPA's chemical management and pollution prevention programs that affect tribes. Given the uniqueness of tribal cultures, communities and environmental problems, the forum will help EPA better tailor and more efficiently address a variety of issues, expand pollution prevention and safer chemical initiatives in Indian country, and better evaluate unique chemical exposures on tribal lands.

The FY2015 Request for Applications to provide technical support to NTTC is now available. Proposals are due by June 15, 2015.

April 21 – June 30, 2015:
Tribal consultation and coordination period for EPA’s proposed regulations for trichloroethylene (TCE) when used for commercial degreasing (open top vapor degreasing and spray degreasing), as a spotting agent in dry cleaning, and in some consumer products (spray degreasing and clear protective coating sprays) and methylene chloride and n-methylpyrrolidone (NMP) when used in paint or coating removal products. NMP and methylene chloride are used in commercial processes and in consumer products in residential settings.
