Environmental justice assessment notices

Beginning July 1, 2023, the Healthy Environment for All Act (HEAL Act) requires specific state agencies to conduct an environmental justice assessment for significant agency actions. Significant agency actions includes:

  • The development and adoption of significant legislative rules as defined in RCW 34.05.328.
  • The development and adoption of any new grant or loan program that the agency is explicitly authorized or required by statute to implement.
  • A capital project, grant, or loan award costing at least $12,000,000.
  • A transportation project, grant, or loan costing at least $15,000,000.
  •  The submission of agency request legislation to the Office of the Governor or the OFM for approval.

Under RCW 70A.02.090 each covered agency must file a notice with us of significant agency actions for which the agency is initiating an environmental justice assessment. We prepare a list of all filings received from covered agencies each week to post here.

Agencies covered by the HEAL Act or who have opted in to the HEAL Act requirements include the Departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Ecology, Health, Natural Resources, Transportation, the Office of the Attorney General, and the Puget Sound Partnership.

Below is list of state agency environmental justice assessments that you can filter by agency or type of action, or use the search bar to find certains terms. These are updated every Friday. Select an action for more information, including a link to the website for the relevant agency.
