ARRT Guidelines for Coordination and Consultation with Federally-Recognized Tribes


Summer 2020: 2020 Alaska Regional Response Team and Alaska Area Committees Guidelines for Coordination and Consultation with Federally Recognized Tribes. We would appreciate your comments. Please submit any comments or questions to Mary Goolie, EPA ARRT Coordinator/Area Planner (goolie.mary@epa.gov). 

The ARRT first produced the ARRT Guidelines for Coordination and Consultation with Federally Recognized Tribes in 2014 to help ensure consistancy in our interactions with federally-recognized tribes.  . The ARRT Coordinators (from U.S Coast Guard, Environmental Protection Agency and Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation) have recently updated this guidance to reflect the new Contingency Planning structure and formation of Area Committees in Alaska.
