Education and Outreach
Public participation is vital for the implementation of the overall air toxics program. The EPA has on-going activities involving cities, communities, State, local and tribal agencies, and other groups and organizations that help the Agency implement its programs to reduce air toxics emissions. Outreach and education efforts include:
- The Innovative Programs and Outreach Group offers training on Risk Based Air Toxics. See http://www.epa.gov/ttn/atw/training/training.html
- Available tools to help government agencies and community organizations better understand and reduce air toxics in local areas through local urban air toxics assessment and reduction strategies.
- Periodic Reports to Congress on topics including the Urban Air Toxics Strategy and the Great Waters Program.
