Environmental Justice Annual Implementation Report for Fiscal Year 2022


The Department’s ability to affect environmental justice arises principally through environmental review of the impact of our own operations, financial assistance to state, tribal, territorial, and local governments, and the public, and environmental compliance activities, and through regulatory permitting. Recognizing that the incorporation of environmental justice policies may be highly variable across the Department depending on a Component’s mission, the DHS Environmental Justice Program is intended to promote a comprehensive, consistent, and adaptive strategy among our Components through training, ongoing policy development to incorporate environmental justice considerations, and strong partnerships.

The DHS Environmental Justice Program is co-led by the Office of the Chief Readiness Support Officer (OCRSO) and the Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties (CRCL). This designation is outlined in DHS Directive 023-04, rev. 00, Environmental Justice, which establishes policy for the Department's ongoing efforts to incorporate environmental justice principles into its programs, policies, and activities. Additionally, the Directive outlines OCRSO and CRCL’s roles and responsibilities, including the creation of this annual report, and establishes an internal DHS Environmental Justice Working Group.
