Participant Perspectives on Environmental and Climate Justice: Lessons for Human Services

The Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation is partnering with Urban Institute to conduct a study that seeks the perspectives of participants in programs funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and other federal agencies about:

  • The environmental and climate exposures they and their communities face;
  • How they view environmental and climate justice concerns;
  • Mitigation and adaptation resources they can access or are aware of; and
  • Additional resources and strategies useful to address these issues.

They are recruiting people participating in programs funded by the federal Administration for Children and Families and Administration for Community Living, as well as Community Action Agencies and other human services agencies. They seek participation from adults (18 and over) who are comfortable speaking English and live in different regions of the country so that a mix of climate change and environmental hazard contexts are represented.

The researchers are conducting the interviews and focus groups through July 2024 and are offering $50 gift card incentives to interview participants and $75 gift card incentives to focus group participants.
