The Exchange Network is a partnership that supports better decision-making through improved access to environmental information.
EPA and agencies from states, tribes, and territories are collaboratively building the Network to improve the nations ability to understand, protect, and preserve
human health and the environment.
In FY 2015, the National Environmental Information Exchange Network (Exchange Network, Network or EN) Grant Program is focusing on Phase 2 of the EN and the incorporation of certain aspects of the E-Enterprise for the Environment (E-Enterprise or EE) initiative into the EN program.
The general goals of the EE initiative align with the goals of the EN program, and, for this reason, the incorporation of certain EE initiatives into the EN program will further the goals of Phase 2. The aspects of the EE initiative that we are incorporating into the EN program will improve environmental outcomes and dramatically enhance service to the regulated community and the public by maximizing the use of advanced monitoring and information technologies, optimizing operations, and increasing transparency.
