The Department of Homeland Security (DHS or Department) is comprised of 15 Operational and Support Components with far-reaching programs and activities. With this Request for information (RFI), DHS is seeking public comment and feedback on how environmental justice is considered Department-wide, how it can provide opportunities for meaningful engagement in decision-making, and what to include in the next DHS Environmental Justice Strategy. The public is encouraged to provide input in response to the questions in this RFI and to share barriers and challenges, successes, suggestions, and ideas. DHS will use this information to help improve and advance the Department's environmental justice program, conduct meaningful engagement, and address environmental justice challenges that communities are facing.
