Overview of Disadvantaged Community Tools for Urban Forestry in NY
November 29 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Join DEC for a short overview of the three tools used to determine disadvantaged community status in urban forestry in New York and for Inflation Reduction Active (IRA) funding opportunities. We’ll discuss the tools, NY’s Disadvantaged Communities (DACs), Potential Environmental Justice Areas (PEJA), and the federal Community Economic Justice Screening Tool (CEJST); give a brief overview of the differences between the tools; and then show how to access and use these tools to evaluate your community.
