Project Title & Description
NYSDEC Environmental Justice Protocol
The objective of this grant is for the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation to develop an environmental justice protocol for use in the permit review process. The protocol will serve to incorporate reliable sources of health data and develop a method of conducting disproportionate adverse environmental impact analyses. This effort will reduce disproportionate impacts to disadvantaged populations as a result of the permitting process.
