Community Involvement Training Program

The Community Involvement Training (CIT) program brings together people from EPA and its partners and stakeholders who plan and implement community involvement, partnership, stewardship, outreach and education programs. The CIT provides an in-person forum for interactions between EPA and state, local, federal and tribal representatives as well as academia and private industry.    

The program features a plenary session with guest speakers, an all-hands session with a special emphasis on cleanup and reuse, engaging and interactive training sessions, and networking opportunities.

EPA held the most recent CIT in Kansas City, Missouri, from July 17-19, 2018.
