Webinar on EJ Circular
The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) cordially invites you to join us for a webinar…
Environmental Justice: What does it mean?
Tuesday, December 11, 2012
1:00PM – 3:00PM US Eastern time
The Federal Transit Administration (FTA)’s Office of Planning and Environment, in conjunction with The FHWA-FTA Transportation Planning Capacity Building Program, invites you to participate in a Webinar on FTA’s recently released Circular 4703.1, Environmental Justice Policy Guidance for Federal Transit Administration Recipients.
In July, FTA released final guidance in the form of a Circular on incorporating environmental justice (EJ) principles into plans, projects, and activities that receive funding from FTA. This final guidance reiterates recommendations to Metropolitan Planning Organizations, public transportation providers, State Departments of Transportation, and other recipients of FTA funds on how to fully engage EJ populations in the public transportation decision-making process; how to determine whether EJ populations would be subjected to disproportionately high and adverse human health or environmental effects as a result of a transportation plan, project, or activity; and how to avoid, minimize, or mitigate these effects. FTA’s Webinar on the Circular will explore the details of these recommendations and provide specific guidance for how FTA grant recipients should incorporate EJ review into their transportation planning and NEPA efforts.
There is no registration process for this webinar. It will be open to all, but access is limited to the first 200 people who sign on to the URL: https://connectdot.connectsolutions.com/ftaenvironmentaljustice3/
