EPA’s EJSCREEN Tool "Office Hours" to Be Held Bimonthly, First on August 18

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is holding a set of "office hours" for users of EJSCREEN, its environmental justice screening and mapping tool. This will be an opportunity for the public to talk with EPA experts about how to use and apply the tool, technical issues, and any other questions. The EPA will hold these sessions on a bimonthly basis. The first session is scheduled for August 18th, 2021 at 12:00 pm EST. The office hours will be accessible via Zoom and registration is not required.

Meeting link: August 18th, 2021 at 12:00 pm EST

The EPA will give brief updates on new features in EJSCREEN, upcoming changes, and other relevant topics. The majority of the time will be reserved for stakeholder questions and feedback. There will not be an agenda or formal presentations.

EJSCREEN is EPA’s publicly available environmental justice mapping and screening tool that provides users with high-resolution environmental and demographic information for locations across the United States. This online tool uses nationally consistent data to compare locations and pulls information into easy-to-use maps and reports.

EJSCREEN was released to the public in 2015 and quickly became a resource for all levels of government, private sector, and the American people to identify areas with environmental justice concerns and other environmental issues. Since its public release, EJSCREEN has consistently ranked as one of EPA’s most used tools.

We hope that you will join these open discussions and learn about EJSCREEN as well as to get your questions answered. Learn more about EJSCREEN. For additional questions, please contact Tai Lung.
