NOTES:Please note, FHWA is developing a new advanced level 2-day Instructor-led Training for Environmental Justice Analysis. We anticipate this new course will be available by Fall 2018, and our existing NHI 142042 Environmental Justice course will no longer be offered at that time. Following delivery of the Environmental Justice Analysis course, NHI course 142074, Fundamentals of Environmental Justice WBT, will be offered in lieu of NHI 142042.


Addressing environmental justice applies to every stage of transportation decisionmaking. The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) and its partners are committed to integrating the nondiscrimination principles of environmental justice into all Federal-aid programs. Through these and other transportation programs, many opportunities exist to establish partnerships with other public and private organizations to create livable communities that meet the needs of all people. This course presents participants with a framework for using a variety of approaches and tools for accomplishing environmental justice goals in Federal-aid programs and other transportation projects.


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

  • Define environmental justice and describe its relationship to Title VI
  • Explain the fundamental principles of environmental justice
  • Apply the principles of environmental justice to transportation decisions
  • Identify how environmental justice applies to each stage of transportation decisionmaking
  • Describe the benefits of environmental justice in transportation decisionmaking
  • Develop proactive strategies, methods, and techniques to implement environmental justice in transportation programs and projects


We strongly encourage the sponsoring organization to invite a mix of civil rights, environmental, engineering, and planning staff from the following agencies: Federal, State, and regional organizations, local transit agencies, and consultants who act on their behalf. Others who interact with minority and low-income communities; provide community services; and elected officials and their representatives.
