Background

Under Plan EJ 2014, the Resource Tool Development focuses on two components:

  1. Grants and technical assistance to support community-based programs, and
  2. Workforce diversity.
EPA seeks to develop an efficient and effective system for delivering financial and technical assistance to empower communities to improve their health and environment.

EPA’s efforts advance the Administrator’s priority of Expanding the Conversation on Environmentalism and Working for Environmental Justice. They establish a new paradigm for the delivery of EPA assistance to minority, low-income, tribal, and indigenous peoples to promote equitable development and create healthy and sustainable neighborhoods. They also respond to the Cross-Agency Focus Area under Plan EJ 2014 of Supporting Community-Based Action Programs.

EPA also seeks to achieve an inclusive work environment in its outreach and recruitment of potential employees. When EPA recruits and retains an inclusive workforce — one that looks like the America it serves — and individual differences are respected, appreciated, and valued, diversity becomes an organizational strength that contributes to achieving results.
