Michigan Interagency Environmental Justice Response Team

  • Integrating equity and Environmental Justice into state government is vital for the state of Michigan. The Interagency Environmental Justice Response Team was created with the goal of assuring that all Michigan residents benefit equitably from the protections and policies of state government. Governor Whitmer's Executive Order 2019-06 named the Departments of Agriculture and Rural Development, Civil Rights, Health and Human Services, Natural Resources, Transportation, the Michigan Strategic Fund, and the Public Service Commission to the Response Team. Since its inception, several other agencies were invited to provide a comprehensive picture of programs and policies affecting Environmental Justice communities.
