Minority and low-income communities are often disproportionately exposed to environmental harm and risks. EPA has programs and projects to protect these communities from adverse effects on human health and the environment. The Agency is committed to the fair treatment of these communities. This includes the opportunity to participate meaningfully in the development, implementation and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations, and policies. This participation requires access to the wide variety of resources available from EPA. In light of this commitment, EPAs Pacific Southwest Regional Office has developed this Resource Guide as a tool for individuals, non-governmental organizations, community groups, and local officials. The goal is to provide information and access to EPAs funding sources, training opportunities, and technical and program assistance. The guide highlights recent successes in communities affected by environmental injustices and references some of the tools these communities have used to achieve results. This publication will also help organizations, agencies, and academics who work with Environmental Justice (EJ) communities to recognize opportunities to help their constituents.
