Community Involvement and Environmental Justice
EPA is supporting national Environmental Justice (EJ) goals by inviting communities to provide input during the permit application review process. To support early engagement of permittees and overburdened communities, EPA's Pacific Southwest office has developed an Environmental Justice and Permitting Implementation Plan which the Pacific Southwest regional office will follow in processing EPA RCRA and TSCA permit applications. In addition, EPA has developed a community engagement guide for potential permitees, entitled Promising Practices for Permit Applicants Seeking EPA-Issued Permits: Ways to Engage Neighboring Communities. Please see the Environmental Justice and Permitting webpage for further information.
