Resources to Identify Disadvantaged Communities

The Environmental and Climate Justice Program (ECJ Program), created by the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), provides funding for financial and technical assistance to carry out environmental and climate justice activities to benefit underserved and overburdened communities. A number of tools exist to assist potential applicants seeking to identify whether a community is disadvantaged for the purposes of implementing programs under the IRA. EPN has compiled information on EPA’s definition of a disadvantaged community as well as tools, including EPA’s EJScreen, CEJST, and others, to help identify disadvantaged/environmental justice communities.
