Promising Practices for EJ [Environmental Justice] Methodologies in NEPA Reviews

US Dept. of Energy

The Environmental Justice (EJ) Interagency Working Group (IWG) Promising Practices report is a compilation of approaches that the NEPA Committee gleaned from an almost 4-year review of agency practices. The report consists of nine sections: Meaningful Engagement, Scoping Process, Defining the Affected Environment, Developing and Selecting Alternatives, Identifying Minority Populations, Identifying Low-Income Populations, Impacts, Disproportionately High and Adverse Impacts, and Mitigation and Monitoring.  Within each section, the report provides guiding principles and specific steps to consider during the NEPA process.
