How to Use the Map
Add grants to the map by placing a check in the check box next to the program of interest (Small Grants or EJ Showcase Communities). Then zoom to an exact location by entering a state, city, or zip code in the search box or by utilizing the zoom bar in the upper left corner of the map. Click on the indicator to obtain additional information on the project. For small grants, points on this map indicate the city of the receiving organization and not necessarily where the work is being done. See "Questions About the Maps" for additional information and needs accommodations due to a disability.
Questions About the Maps
- What are the limitations of interactive maps?
Interactive mapping tools are a challenge for accessibility due to the inherent visual aspects of mapping. These maps cannot be made fully accessible under Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (as amended in 1998). If a person needs accommodations due to a disability, additional assistance is available in obtaining information on the environmental enforcement actions taken at the facilities shown on these interactive maps. Individuals, who may need information not accessible to them, can contact Allison Landsman for assistance by email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
- What does this map allow me to do?
The map allows the user to navigate across the United States and to zoom in and out of places of interest. If you have an interest in a specific location, we recommend that you zoom into the location by entering a city, state, or zip code in the search box or by utilizing the zoom bar in the upper left corner of the map. After you zoom in, the project location indicator will change from a dot to a flag and you will be able to click on the flag indicator to obtain additional information on the environmental justice grant or project. Note: for small grants, points on this map indicate the city of the receiving organization and not necessarily where the work is being done.
