Harmful per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are an urgent public health and environmental issue facing communities across the United States. In October 2021, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published the PFAS Strategic Roadmap—committing to bolder new policies to safeguard public health, protect the environment, and hold polluters accountable. As part of the Roadmap, EPA committed to engage with communities in each EPA Region in order to better understand their lived experiences and challenges in grappling with PFAS contamination. Read more information about EPA’s PFAS efforts.
To help inform EPA’s ongoing work under the Roadmap, EPA plans to facilitate a series of virtual community engagement sessions in 2023 for each of EPA’s ten Regions. EPA also plans to hold a session specifically designed to hear from our Tribal partners. These engagement sessions will provide opportunities for communities to share feedback directly with EPA Regional and PFAS Council leaders to inform the implementation of the actions described in the Roadmap.
EPA plans to hold these PFAS community engagement sessions virtually in 2023. As EPA works to identify specific dates and times for each session, please use the form below to sign up to receive more information. Your contact information will only be used to inform you when EPA has scheduled these events so that you can register to attend one of the community engagement sessions. Note: EPA will use your information solely to inform you when EPA has scheduled regional PFAS engagement sessions. We will not share your information with any third party
