In February, the White House published a beta version of its new environmental justice screening tool

Once finalized, this map and formula will be used by government agencies to ensure that at least 40 percent of the overall benefits of certain federal climate, clean energy, affordable and sustainable housing, clean water, and other programs are directed to disadvantaged communities — an initiative known as Justice40.

But this new screening tool is not only essential to environmental justice goals. It’s also a pioneering experiment in open governance. Since last May, the software development for the tool has been open source: find it on GitHub

Maybe we can discuss this in our next podchat @OmaMorkie @Olli ?
