How does EPA receive information from the public?

To ensure that EPA was obtaining adequate stakeholder advice as it implemented a national environmental justice program, the Agency chartered the National Environmental Justice Advisory Council (NEJAC) in 1993. The Council which is governed by the Federal Advisory Committee Act provides independent advice to EPA on all matters relating to environmental justice. It consists of 25 members appointed from stakeholder groups including community-based organizations; business and industry; academic and educational institutions; state and local government agencies; tribal government and community groups; non-governmental organizations and environmental groups.
