Community involvement is the process of engaging in dialogue and collaboration with community members. The goal of Superfund community involvement is to advocate and strengthen early and meaningful community participation during Superfund cleanups.

Stay Informed and Involved

The goals of the Superfund community involvement (CI) program are to: 1) keep communities affected by sites informed throughout the cleanup process, 2) provide opportunities for communities to comment and offer their input about site cleanup plans, and 3) facilitate the resolution of community issues tied to a site. EPA accomplishes these goals by providing communities different tools and resources to support their site involvement. These resources include independent technical assistance so community members can understand the technical aspects of a site, a public forum for community members to present and discuss their needs and concerns related to the Superfund decision making process, and a job training program to encourage employment of local workers. These are just some of the CI program's resources.
