APPLETREE Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO)

Oct 06, 2022 | Charlotte Ciampa

The CDC’s Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR), a federal public health agency, announced a new notice of funding opportunity (NOFO) for its APPLETREE program has been published on www.Grants.gov.

This new 5-year ATSDR’s Partnership to Promote Local Efforts To Reduce Environmental Exposure (APPLETREE) cooperative agreement program will fund approximately 34 state and local health departments and/or federally recognized American Indian/Alaska Native Tribal governments for a period of performance from April 1, 2023, to March 31, 2028.

Through this cooperative agreement, funded applicants will receive resources and guidance to assess and respond to site-specific issues involving exposure to hazardous substances in the environment.

This includes:

  • identifying if and how people are exposed to toxic chemicals at specific sites,
  • reviewing environmental sampling data and other information to identify potential health risks,
  • making recommendations to prevent exposures, and
  • engaging affected communities and local health professionals about site contamination and potential health effects.

In addition to these activities, funded applicants may use the funds to protect children from environmental hazards at new early care and education facilities for young children.

Applications are due no later than 11:59 p.m. (ET), on December 9, 2022. Information on how to apply is available at www.grants.gov.

For more information about ATSDR, please visit www.atsdr.cdc.gov or call 1-800-CDC-INFO (232-4636). For more details about the APPLETREE program, visit https://www.atsdr.cdc.gov/states/index.html.
