Project Title & Description
Bldg Community Capacity-CA San Joaquin Valley
This proposal will address children�s environmental health issues in three underserved communities - Arvin and Wasco (Kern County) and Lindsay (Tulare County). The project builds on a website enforcement tools, the Imperial Visions Action Network (IVAN) that has over the past two years led to 44 reported violations to enforcement agencies, more than $90,000 in penalties and tens of thousands of dollars to environmental justice projects. Leaders from community groups will be trained through training sessions held in each County so that they can reach out to educate the broader community on the health aspects of environmental hazards and how to recognize and report violations.
