Abstract The Federal Interagency Working Group on Environmental Justice (IWG) was established in 1994 under Executive Order (EO) 12898. The IWG is comprised of federal agencies and several White House offices. Chaired by the Administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the IWGs focus is to integrate environmental justice into federal agency programs, policies and activities. In August 2011 the federal family reaffirmed its commitment to work for environmental justice and continue the collaborative work of the IWG. The IWG works to share lessons-learned and ensure opportunities for collaboration in addressing environmental justice concerns. The IWG is pleased to provide this guide as a source of information for individuals and organizations working in communities overburdened by the adverse health impacts of exposure to toxics where they live, work and play. The programs included in this guide are focused on resources that would assist communities with technical or financial assistance to reduce exposure. Through this and other efforts, federal agencies are recommitting to improving the health and sustainability of communities across America.
