Lead Poisoning Prevention Funding Opportunity

Feb 21, 2019 | Michelle Shapiro

The National Center for Healthy Housing (NCHH) announced a new funding opportunity to help communities build local capacity and advance evidence-based lead poisoning prevention efforts: 2019 Lead Poisoning Prevention Grants: Equipping Communities for Action through the National Lead Poisoning Prevention Network.

NCHH invites communities to apply for a bundled award of coaching and support over 18 months that includes access to a network of national experts (including NCHH, Environmental Defense Fund, ChangeLab Solutions, and National League of Cities), opportunities to engage in a peer learning network with other communities tackling childhood lead exposure, a customized cost-benefit analysis (conducted by Altarum Institute), and a $25,000 grant, generously funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

NCHH anticipate that a minimum of eight communities will be selected. Eligible applicants include local or regional nonprofit and community-based organizations (including public health institutes) and county, local, and tribal government agencies who are based in the United States and serve small and mid-sized cities (50,000 – 400,000 residents). Funding should be used to build capacity within a community and help communities achieve policy, practice, or systems change.

Online applications must be submitted by 5:00 pm ET, Friday, March 22, 2019.

For more information about the application, please visit http://bit.ly/LPPECgrants19.
