Description This document summarizes progress the Department of Ecology has made on implementation of Washington’s environmental justice law, Chapter 70A.02 RCW (also known as the Healthy Environment for All Act, or the HEAL Act). This report identifies how the agency met key legislative targets and outlines the plan for implementing HEAL from 2023-2025. The timelines included in this summary report are only projected goals. In line with the intent of the Act, we anticipate this to be an iterative and collaborative process.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
