Commitment to a Healthy Environment and
Strong Economy for Overburdened Communities

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 IWG’s 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

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.

   Support To Develop
   Measurement Tools,
   Accreditation Standards, And
   Technical Support
   The U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
   is offering financial assistance to a technically
   qualified, eligible organization (i.e., nonprofit and
   universities) interested in the development of
   measurement tools, accreditation standards,
   and technical support. For over six years, the
   EPA through the Forum on Environmental
   Measurement (FEM) has developed policies to
   guide the Agency’s measurement community
   in: validating and disseminating methods for
   sample collection and analysis; for ensuring that
   monitoring studies are scientifically rigorous,
   statistically sound, and yield representative
   measurements; and for employing a quality
   systems approach that ensures that the data
   gathered and used by the Agency is of known
   and documented quality.
