Founded in 2016, ELI’s Blight Revitalization Initiative for Green, Healthy Towns (BRIGHT) helps environmental justice communities craft their own area-wide plans or corridor projects. The BRIGHT team works with communities on the ground and also publishes the BRIGHT Guide. BRIGHT seeks to empower just, equitable, and community-driven sustainable development by providing tools and resources to support the community in accomplishing its goals.  The BRIGHT Guide is the flagship publication and a living guide for readers to assist in their creation and execution of a corridor project. EPA defines a corridor project as a community-driven area-wide plan for communities dealing with legacy pollution and other environmental justice issues.
