Focus Communities

In our region, the communities that bear the highest impact of air pollution also tend to be those with greater socioeconomic challenges. For example, lower income communities and communities of color face higher exposure to diesel exhaust. Our strategy prioritizes air pollution and exposure reductions for communities that historically experience challenges to economic opportunity and decision making access in order to champion clean and healthy air for all.

The following criteria was used to determine our equity and prioritization efforts.
