  Northeast Environmental Enforcement Project  
  Mission I History I Contact/Join I Publications  
  The Northeast Environmental Enforcement Project (NEEP) was formed in 1980 when the Attorneys General of eleven states (Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Vermont) met to respond to a greater need for interstate cooperation among environmental enforcement officials in the northeast region. The original membership has expanded to include Ohio, Virginia, West Virginia, and the District of Columbia as full members; and the Province of Quebec, the Defense Criminal Investigative Service, the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, the Air Force Office of Special Investigations, and Environment Canada as Associate Members.    
  The Northeast Project served as a model for the development of three other regional environmental enforcement associations, namely, the Midwest Environmental Enforcement Association, the Southern Environmental Enforcement Network, and the Western States Project--each distinctive in their composition, but dedicated to the same goals and objectives, resulting in a national environmental network. Today forty-eight states, the District of Columbia, and four Canadian provinces are members of at least one regional association. Membership is composed of representatives from agencies responsible for environmental regulatory activities, civil and administrative enforcement, and criminal investigation and prosecution. Funding for each association is provided by state membership contributions and a grant from the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency.  
  The Project provides many valuable services to its membership, including discipline-specific training, general information conferences, networking opportunities, an information services computer database, and support services. We also publish a newsletter twice a year which includes information on Project activities, timely environmental and legislative updates, and general items of interest.
