Frequent Questions

Which permits will EPA regional offices consider prioritizing for enhanced outreach?

EPA’s guidance balances national consistency and regional flexibility in deciding which permits will be prioritized for enhanced outreach. Thus, while all EPA regional offices will prioritize permits with significant impacts on overburdened communities, enhanced outreach activities may vary across and within a region depending on the potential impacts of the permitted activity, the affected community and the potential impact of enhanced outreach. The regional implementation plans give a general picture of the types of permits that an EPA regional office expects will be considered for enhanced outreach and what enhanced outreach might entail.
