ERG, home to some of the nation’s leading experts on mobile sources of pollution, recently launched VW Settlement Update, a newsletter dedicated to helping states and tribes take advantage of the $2.7 billion Environmental Mitigation Trust. The first issue, published on May 23, features articles that explain how existing health data can inform project funding decisions, answer several frequently asked questions, and provide updates on the latest legal developments in the case. The Environmental Mitigation Trust is part of a legal settlement between Volkswagen, the U.S. Department of Justice, and the state of California. The trust provides funds to help states and tribes mitigate the effects of VW’s failure to comply with clean air laws.
