EPA Grants for Environmental Health

Posted by on June 4, 2004

Environmental Protection Agency Region III is soliciting assistance applications for grants or cooperative agreements which address regional strategic priorities. These grants fund unique, geographically-based projects that support the Agency’s ability to protect human health and the environment. Projects are used as seed or start-up funds that further regional strategic initiatives. Region III is specifically looking for projects that are multi media in nature, showcase innovation, promote collaboration, and identify opportunities for leveraging other sources of funding. Emphasis will be placed on projects that would result in environmental or human health outcomes within a specific time frame.

One of the three strategic priority areas (of most relevance to CCPH members) is Reducing Environmental Exposure to Sensitive Populations – reduce lead exposure in children (via outreach to landlords on regulatory requirements); reduce asthma in children and elderly, reduce exposures to pesticides, asbestos, radon and harmful food exposures.

Work must benefit the Region III geographic area of Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, and/or the District of Columbia

Proposals are due July 16
