Environmental Justice Assessment of SCOG Project Selections

Every few years, SCOG conducts an assessment of projects that have received federal funds through SCOG selection processes to ensure that SCOG decisions are not having a disproportionately high and adverse impact on minority and low-income populations in Skagit County.  The most recent assessment has just been completed and is available here:

Environmental Justice Assessment of Transportation Alternatives Program & Surface Transportation Program Projects Awarded SCOG Federal Funds in Skagit County – June 2014-May 2017

Note: the three-year assessment time frame corresponds to SCOG’s update to the nondiscrimination program anticipated to occur in May, therefore the assessment extends into May 2017.  No further project selection decisions are expected until after May 2017.
