SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION

I. Background

    HUD is committed to meeting the goals of Executive Order 12898, 
``Federal Actions to Address Environmental Justice in Minority 
Populations and Low-Income Populations,'' which states that each 
federal agency, with the law as its guide, should make environmental 
justice part of its mission. In this regard, HUD has developed its 
draft Environmental Justice Strategy (EJ Strategy). HUD's EJ Strategy 
is a four-year plan to address environmental justice concerns and 
increase access to environmental benefits through HUD policies, 
programs, and activities. HUD's EJ strategy can be found at http://portal.hud.gov/hudportal/HUD?src=/program_offices/sustainable_housing_communities/HUD_Draft_Environmental_Justice_Strategy.
    The release of the draft is the latest step in a larger 
Administration-wide effort to ensure strong protection from 
environmental and health hazards for all Americans. In August, federal 
agencies signed the ``Memorandum of Understanding on Environmental 
Justice and Executive Order 12898'' (EJ MOU), which committed each 
agency to, among other things, finalizing an EJ strategy and releasing 
annual implementation reports. Links to the other federal EJ Strategies 
can be found on the Environmental Justice Interagency Workgroup Web 
page at http://www.epa.gov/environmentaljustice/interagency/index.html. 
Links will be available by Friday, October 7th.

2011. Comments can be submitted by e-mailing EJStrategy@hud.gov. HUD 
will review the comments submitted, and is targeting finalization of 
the strategy by February 2012. After the strategy is issued in final,
