Justice40/Environmental Justice Stakeholder Engagement Meeting
The purpose of the meeting is two-fold:
1. To share information about the Justice40 Initiative and also one of the pilot programs covered under the Initiative – the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) Environmental Career Worker Training Program (ECWTP).
2. To solicit your feedback and suggestions on how to enhance the program's effectiveness.

Please consider attending this event so that we can develop a more robust workforce development model to conduct environmental and construction-related training for disadvantaged and underserved populations throughout the United States.

The ECWTP provides training to increase opportunities for individuals from disadvantaged and underserved communities to obtain careers in environmental cleanup, construction, hazardous waste removal, and emergency response. The ECWTP is a part of the broader Worker Training Program (WTP) which is located within the NIEHS Division of Extramural Research and Training.

Authorized by the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act of 1986 (SARA), WTP funds nonprofit organizations that have demonstrated experience with providing high-quality occupational health and safety training to workers who may be involved in handling hazardous materials or engaging in emergency response activities.
