Superfund Job Training Initiative

What is Environmental Justice?

Environmental Justice (EJ) is the fair treatment for people of all races, cultures and incomes regarding the development of environmental laws, regulations and policies.

Through initiatives like the SuperJTI program, EPA maintains an ongoing commitment to ensure environmental justice for all people, regardless of race, color, national origin or income.

Making a Difference

SuperJTI is a job readiness program that provides training and employment opportunities for people living in communities affected by Superfund sites. Many of these areas are Environmental Justice (EJ) communities – historically under-represented minority and low-income neighborhoods and areas burdened with significant environmental challenges. EPA’s goal is to help these communities develop job opportunities that remain long after a Superfund site has been cleaned up.

The SuperJTI web pages provide information about the program’s services, ongoing and completed projects, and contact information for communities interested in SuperJTI training. These web pages also provide answers to frequently asked questions.
