Earlier in the fall CIRCA announced the application window for the Mapping Tool Advisory Committee (MTAC), a group of community-based organizations and individuals with lived experience who will receive grant funding to participate in the review of the Statewide Environmental Justice Mapping Tool currently under development by CIRCA and DEEP. The final MTAC recipients have now been selected, including community-based organizations and individuals with a wide range of expertise and lived experience. Further information on the MTAC’s role and its newly selected members can be found here.
Individuals and community-based organizations active in environmental justice work or related work in Connecticut are encouraged to apply to the Environmental Justice Mapping Tool Advisory Committee (MTAC). Applications close October 12th, 2022.

Individuals and community-based organizations active in environmental justice work or related work in Connecticut are encouraged to apply to the Environmental Justice Mapping Tool Advisory Committee (MTAC). Applications open September 12th, 2022 and close October 12th, 2022.
The MTAC will be an advisory group to the EJ Mapping Project, a partnership between CIRCA and CT DEEP. MTAC grants will fund individuals and organizations for their time spent on this advisory work. Importantly, this funding expands the capacity of groups often disenfranchised from participation in tools or policies that directly impact them. The grant period will run from January – August 2023, with funding delivered in monthly stipends. CIRCA expects to select 7 grantees to serve on the MTAC, each funded at $5,000. Participation from MTAC members will primarily consist of attending 5 virtual meetings and 1 in-person regional forum (multiple dates available), along with associated review of EJ mapping materials to prepare for these meetings. The time commitment is expected to be 20 – 25 hours total between January – August 2023.
