King County Equity Impact Review (EIR) Tool

Developed by Seattle & King County Public Health, this Equity Impact Review (EIR) tool provides guidance on identifying the equity impact of programs and policies while under development or when being considered for revision. As part of the Equity and Social Justice Initiative at King County, all King County Departments are being directed to use the Equity Impact Review (EIR) tool to ensure that promoting equity is intentionally considered in the development and implementation of key policies and programs and in major revisions to a policy or program. This tool is designed for use at the county level but it can be adapted for the state level. The tool is used to assess how a program or policy has or will positively or negatively affect determinants of equity, including housing, education, built and natural environments, and community economic development.
