IVAN

The Identifying Violations Affecting Neighborhoods (IVAN) self-reporting tool is an online resource that allows members of the community to report any environmental violations that are occurring around them to the proper authorities. The IVAN program also contains an environmental justice task force that meets once a month to discuss reported incidents and the follow-ups by authorities with community members. The IVAN program brings together community, regulatory agencies, and environmental justice advocates to provide a better environment for all through conversations and a forum to discuss accountability.

The moderate success of IVAN served as a base for the development of the IVAN Air community air monitoring network (CAMN). The IVAN Air project is a collaboration between environmental justice, academia, regulators, and the community. IVAN Air consists of more than forty (40) community air monitoring stations that monitor air quality at the neighborhood level.
