Covered EEOICPA Facilities
EECAP's goal is to set up a webpage for all the EEOICPA facilities to make it easier to find information on specific sites that are covered by EEOICPA. There is a lot of information on the internet that can help with this but it is scattered and not easy to locate.
EECAP wants to make this easier on claimants. We now have webpages for eight states and have tried to make these claimant friendly. If you have a facility you would like to appear on the website, please contact us.
EECAP has tried to make this information as factual as possible but mistakes can happen, especially in a project this large. Please contact us if you find any and we will make corrections.
If you find this helpful, please make a donation to support our efforts with this project. Thank you.
The DOE Legacy Management's Site Management Guide, Revision 12 is a reference document that provides accurate and consistent information across the LM organization. The Guide is updated bi-annually.
EECAP now has interactive maps that show information on claim payment rates, different facilities, and other interesting facts about EEOICPA. This is an ongoing project so check back often to see what is new!
EECAP has a digital library of thousands of documents from nuclear weapons sites. Because the work done at these sites was secret workers worked on a need to know basis. This can make it very difficult to know what materials workers were exposed to. Because it can be very hard to locate information on old nuclear weapons sites we have started a project to make these documents available on our website. We hope the library will grow over time and be useful to claimants, advocates, and other interested people. Keep checking back and watch our on-line library grow!
Why facility specific documents are useful
Documents that give specific information on a nuclear weapons site are useful for proving employment, what chemicals were available on a site, what jobs were done at a site, and other information that Department of Labor may not have. Because the EEOICPA law says that the "burden of proof" is on the claimant, it is up to claimants to prove employment, exposures, illnesses, and any thing else DOL needs to know. Often information needed for a claim is contained within the document released by the facility where the worker worked.
