Local Government Environmental Assistance Network (LGEAN)

The U.S. EPA-sponsored Local Government Environmental Assistance Network (LGEAN) provides a one-stop shop for environmental compliance and environmental management information needed by local government practitioners.


ICMA has operated the Local Government Environmental Assistance Network (LGEAN) for many years through a cooperative agreement with U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). LGEAN is one of several "compliance assistance centers" that operate to provide information, tools, and services that facilitate environmental compliance, environmental management systems, pollution prevention, waste minimization, and sound financial management by local governments.

The primary means of communicating information is through the website,,which is maintained by ICMA. Through this cooperative agreement, we also organize relevant sessions at ICMA's annual conference and periodic webinars. The webinars are geared towards pertinent topics, such as March 2014's webinar "Sustainable Stormwater Management: Integrated Planning and Green Infrastructure."

LGEAN's outreach efforts consist of:

  • Postings on including event listings, funding & opportunity postings, and current news
  • A bi-weekly newsletter
  • Facebook
  • Twitter
