The National Center for Healthy Housing, in collaboration with the National Environmental Health Association, the National Association of County and City Health Officials, and the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials, is offering a new funding opportunity for local governmental agencies housing their jurisdiction’s childhood lead prevention programs (i.e., local health departments, local environmental health agencies).
The funding will support agencies to implement a Health in All Policies (HiAP) strategy as part of their lead prevention implementation program and activities. Examples of sponsored activities include building or enhancing a lead coalition and setting up joint meetings with partners to increase screening and case management.
Up to three entities will be awarded a maximum of $20,000 each, as well as technical assistance from the national partners along the way. Online applications must be submitted by Thursday, December 13, 2018 at 5:00pm ET.
This effort is supported through cooperative agreements with CDC’s National Center for Environmental Health (CDC-RFA-OT18-1802: Strengthening Public Health Systems and Services through National Partnerships to Improve and Protect the Nation’s Health).
