Department of Transportation

Effective Practices

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) have compiled examples of how states, metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs) and transit service providers are integrating the principles of Environmental Justice into their varied activities. The examples illustrate that successful initiatives promote public participation, partnerships and collaborative relationships with other government agencies as well as interested advocacy or community based organizations.

The effective practices highlighted the delivered benefits to affected low-income and minority populations and the tangible and intangible benefits the transportation agencies received.
