EPA launched a new online tool to track its permits as the Biden administration races to clear clean energy projects and rebuild the nation’s infrastructure.

The agency announced the new website Tuesday, which has information about EPA’s permitting programs and laws governing environmental reviews. In addition, the site shares resources on how the agency aids marginalized communities struggling with pollution as well as protects civil rights when signing off on permits.

The site displays the progress of EPA permits for large-scale infrastructure projects too, which include several offshore wind farms off the United States’ East Coast. Those projects are covered by Title 41 of the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act, or FAST-41.


“This new, comprehensive website provides a one-stop portal for the public, permit applicants and colleagues from other federal, state and local agencies to quickly find information about EPA’s permitting program and how these permits are helping to protect public health and the environment in communities across our nation,” Deputy Administrator Janet McCabe said in a statement.
