The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) administers the Border Environment Infrastructure Fund (BEIF), which provides grant funding for water and wastewater infrastructure projects located along the international boundary between the United States (U.S.) and Mexico.
EPA policy for use of border funds requires evaluation and certification of projects by the Border Environment Cooperation Commission (BECC) as a condition for grant award. As part of the BECC certification process, the proposed project must comply with (1) Mexican environmental regulations and (2) the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The EPA requires compliance with NEPA before BEIF funds can be authorized. Projects within 62 miles (mi) (100 kilometers [km]) of the U.S./Mexico border are eligible for BEIF assistance.
