ATS Provides Input on Biden Justice40 Initiative

In May, the ATS provided written comments to the Biden Administration on how federal programs can best meet the Justice40 initiative. The Biden Administration announced its goal to direct 40 percent of all climate change spending to disadvantaged communities. The ATS comments focused on three areas, community self-determination, targeted reduction of environmental health disparities and greenhouse gas emissions and environmental justice measurement tools. The Administration is expected to release their plan to implement the Justice40 goal in the near future.
