Creating Opportunities in Research for Environmental Justice Act of 2019 or the CORE Justice Act of 2019

This bill allows certain educational institutions a tax credit for up to 30% of amounts paid that are necessary for a qualified environmental justice program. The bill defines "qualified environmental justice program" as a program conducted by educational institutions that is designed to address, or improve data about, qualified environmental stressors (i.e., contaminations of air, water, soil, or food) for the primary purpose of improving, or facilitating the improvement of, health and economic outcomes of individuals residing in low-income areas or areas populated disproportionately by racial or ethnic minorities.

The bill requires (1) the allocation of credit amounts to educational institutions over a five-year period, and (2) public disclosure of the identity of educational institutions receiving allocations and the amount of each allocation.
