The Equity Task Force works to ensure CDTC’s conformance with Title VI regulations and Environmental Justice. It makes certain that CDTC takes reasonable steps to secure access to opportunities that ensure no person is denied benefits of CDTC’s planning process on the basis of minority and/or low income status, and to identify and address disproportionately high and adverse human health or environmental effects of CDTC’s programs, policies, and activities on minority and low-income populations. It accomplishes this in part by promoting collaborative problem solving on issues related to Environmental Justice and Title VI, and providing input on the most effective methods to engage and respond to Environmental Justice and Title VI populations.
Environmental Justice Project Bulletin
The Equity Task Force maintains the Environmental Justice Project Bulletin, a list of active construction and planning projects in our region's designated Environmental Justice Areas. The Bulletin is provided in order to facilitate input by residents and other stakeholders about projects happening near them.

Focus Groups on Transportation System Gaps
In 2018, the Equity Task Force worked with Sage Shoppe, Inc to facilitate focus groups to discuss gaps people experience in the Capital Region’s transportation system, with a focus on people often not represented in the transportation planning process.
Transportation and Poverty Report
The Environmental Justice Task Force is currently developing a report that will look at how land use, job locations and commuting options affect access to jobs in the Capital Region. Our report will complete an analysis similar to the one completed for the Rochester metropolitan region, Transportation and Poverty in Monroe County.
