Why doesn't EPA use the definite article?


I've always thought that initialisms use the definite article (the FBI, the CIA), acronyms leave it out (NASA, NOAA). EPA seems to leave out the definite article, even though they're definitely using the word as an initialsim (EE-PEE-AY not EEPUH). I can't figure out why. Any thoughts?
