With guidance from the Obama Administration, the US DOT and other members of the Interagency Working Group on Environmental Justice are updating their EJ guidance and strategy documents with the benefit of feedback from community, industry, and equity groups. In August, the DOT has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with other Federal Agencies, reaffirming the significance of EJ.

As part of the reinvigoration of EJ, DOT has updated it Departmental Environmental Justice Strategy. The Department will be accepting public comments on this revised strategy until November 30, 2011.

Other agencies have also published new or revised strategies for EJ, which are listed on the EPA's Compendium of EJ Strategies.

For more information on Environmental Justice policies, history, and compliance, see the EPA's EJ website.
