The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently announced a new Environmental Health Capacity (EHC) funding opportunity to detect, prevent, and control environmental health (EH) hazards through data-driven, evidence-based approaches. EHC is a 5-year opportunity to bolster the capacity of environmental health (EH) programs in public health departments to leverage data-driven and evidence-based approaches to detect, prevent, and control EH hazards.
The new funding opportunity allows recipients to develop evidence-based practices needed to improve community EH:
- Use EH data and information
- Identify and address EH hazards
- Assess the effectiveness and impact of EH interventions
Letters of intent (requested, not required) are due April 17. The application deadline is June 30. To learn more about applying for this grant, visit CDC’s website and/or join an informational call on April 15 (1:00pm ET) at https://adobeconnect.cdc.gov/rkasvmel0hhq. Registration is not required. Note that the webinar will not be recorded but FAQs will be shared.
