The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is planning to stash $12 million to help slash its workforce by about 3,000 in the coming months, The Washington Post reported.

The monies will fund buyouts and early retirements — among other things — that acting chief financial officer David Bloom outlined in a memo, The Post reported, all part of $24 million in carry-over the agency did not spend last year.

"Streamlining and reorganizing is good government and important to maximizing taxpayer dollars. This includes looking at developing opportunities for individuals to retire early," EPA spox Liz Bowman said in a statement to The Post.

President Donald Trump has proposed slashing the EPA budget by 31 percent for 2018, including taking down the workforce to 12,000 employees, a move the EPA calls "reshaping."
