Environmental Justice Analysis is a 2-day Instructor-led Training (ILT) course offered by NHI, the authoritative source in transportation training. The goal of this course is to increase knowledge and skills pertaining to the analysis associated with identifying and addressing disproportionately high and adverse effects of transportation programs, plans, projects, and activities on minority populations and low-income populations. This course provides participants with the information, tools, and data resources to perform EJ analysis activities to help ensure equitable transportation decision making and compliance with transportation planning regulations and NEPA. By accurately identifying communities, practitioners can better address potential adverse impacts to EJ communities and populations, and ensure they are meaningfully involved early and continually throughout the transportation decision-making process. This course provides participants with the procedural concepts, resources, and information to identify EJ populations; recognize potentially adverse impacts and/or benefits; develop and evaluate mitigation measures to address disproportionately high and adverse effects; and approaches for documenting findings and process. This course also provides participants with analysis tools and techniques to identify and address disproportionately high and adverse effects on minority populations and low-income populations during transportation planning and project development.

Throughout the course, participants will have opportunities to use scenarios and data to do the following: estimate spatial scope and magnitude of potential impacts; identify benefits of proposed actions; determine equitable distribution of benefits and burdens; and determine how to communicate findings and document methodology, results, and findings.

Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the basis and importance of EJ analysis to improving decision-making processes.
  • Describe how to perform an EJ analysis during transportation planning and project development using the EJ analysis framework and available data sources, tools, and strategies.
  • Develop EJ analysis findings that ensure equitable transportation decision-making during transportation planning.
  • Develop EJ analysis findings in the context of an environmental review to ensure compliance with EJ Executive Order 12898, U.S.DOT and FHWA EJ orders, and all other requirements relevant to the NEPA process.
  • Identify emerging issues that may impact the analysis of EJ populations as part of transportation decision-making.


The target audience for this instructor-led training course includes transportation practitioners (entry-level, mid-level, and senior-level) who are employed at a range of organizations, including State Departments of Transportation (State DOTs), Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs), local public agencies, and consulting firms. Participants should have at least a college-level education or higher and may hold the following professional roles: data analyst, planner, engineer, project development specialist, environmental specialist, civil rights specialist, consultant, or any other job function that may require knowledge of Environmental Justice (EJ) and transportation. Lastly, participants should have a basic understanding of EJ and transportation planning and project development.
