What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Uranium Impact Assessment Project

In the late 1970's, Navajo uranium miners and their families asked for help to show that their lung diseases had been caused by their work in underground uranium mines in the 1940s to 1960s. SRIC responded with medical and scientific data and in-community education strategies and Congress adopted legislation to compensate former miners and their survivors. SRIC now focuses on preventing new uranium mining and promoting new community-based research on health effects among uranium workers and assessing air impacts from abandoned mines in the Church Rock area, in addition to providing information and support to communities across the West.

Population(s) Served
Infants and toddlers

For more than 30 years, SRIC has supported effective citizen involvement in decisions about the future of the nuclear weapons complex relative to stopping approval of new production facilities, and promoting disarmament and safer waste management practices at U.S. Department of Energy sites -- primary emphasis on New Mexico Department of Energy (DOE) facilities and the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP).

Population(s) Served

For 25 years, SRIC has focused on the impacts of hard rock and coal mining, oil and gas production, landfills, and ground water protection. In recent years, we also have promoted renewable energy production as an economic and environmentally sustainable alternative.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
