EJSCREEN is EPA’s environmental justice tool for highlighting places that may have higher environmental burdens and vulnerable populations. The tool offers a variety of powerful data and mapping capabilities that enable users to access environmental and demographic information at high geographic resolution, across the entire country. 

EPA released EJSCREEN to the public in June of 2015, and after a year of public engagement and collecting feedback from stakeholders, EPA is announcing the release of the latest version of the tool. The new EJSCREEN has an abundance of new features – all of which were requested by the public – including (to list a few):

  • The inclusion of the National Air Toxic Assessment environmental indicators for cancer risk, respiratory, and diesel PM

  • Scalable maps, that summarize data at the Census block group, tract, or county-level

  • The ability to save sessions and print maps from the home screen

  • A feature that allows you to look at two maps, side-by-side

  • The addition of Puerto Rico

Please share this event with your network and anyone who may be interested in attending. If you are in need of special accomodations, please contact the event organizer within at least one day of the event. If you have any questions, please forward them to olp.kevin@epa.gov.
